Jeanne was born in Lake Arthur on Nov. 13, 1937. She passed away on Aug. 10, 2013 at Arc of Acadiana in Iota at the age of 75.
She is survived by her sister, Beverly O’Reagan (Dr. Daniel O’Reagan) of Pineville; and by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Jeanne was preceded in death by her younger brother, John Taber “Deedee” Broussard; her father, Wilson L. Broussard; and her mother, Augusta Taber Broussard Porter.
Jeanne attended public school in Lake Arthur through high school when she moved to a group home in Jennings. In 1960 she moved to Southwest Regional Support and Services Center, now ARC of Acadian in Iota. Jeanne was always fond of animals which she had as pets. Jeanne’s pets gave her unconditional love and in that sense and in some ways, they were her best friends. Later in life when Jeanne could no longer take care of her living animal pets, she became fond of stuffed animals. Her favorite stuffed animal was a little dog that she named “Tiger”. Jeanne and her entire family have a deep appreciation for the doctors, nurses and staff of the Iota Center and Crowley American Legion Hospital.
