Monday’s funeral Mass is set for noon at St. Peter Claver Catholic Church, followed by a dirge procession to Dooky Chase’s. That’s the restaurant where Chase gained fame as a creole chef and civil rights icon. A motorcade to a local cemetery was to be followed by a parade to the New Orleans Museum of Art.
Monday’s will be the last in a series of goodbyes to Chase. A brass band led a parade by the restaurant last Monday, and a public memorial was held at Xavier University on Saturday.
