November 13, 1946 - December 30, 2016


Margaret Ellen Broussard, 70, of Orange, died Friday, December 30, 2016, overcoming her battle with Alzheimerís disease.  She was born on November 13, 1946, in Lufkin, to Marianne Lee Ginter Broussard and Ray Broussard.

Margaret was a retired tennis coach and art teacher for West Orange-Cove Consolidated Independent School District. She taught and coached many students and athletes over 38 years, from 1968-2006.  She was loved by her former students, and could not go anywhere in town without having a few chats with them.

Margaret loved painting and crafting.  She leaves behind many treasured memories from her talents.  You could also find Margaret enjoying herself with friends on her trips to the Louisiana casinos, where she was usually very lucky.  She always enjoyed talking of the news of the day and sharing her usually strong opinions! Loving and teaching her nephew and family her talents and gifts was also a legacy that will remain strong.  More than anything, she loved her Lord and Savior.  She was a longtime member of St. Maryís Catholic Church in Orange.

She is survived by her sister, Mary Broussard, of Houston; nephew, Jon Broussard, and his wife Jenny, of Katy; great-niece, Juliette Broussard; special friends, Kathy Fuqua and Ramona Halten; and numerous cousins.
