Obituary

Jennie was a woman of honor, beauty and grace who was proud of her family and adored her husband. Jennie Lou Shaw Broussard, 85, went to the Lord on June 25, 2020, in Colleyville Texas with family by her side. She was the daughter of Charles Bacomb Shaw and Mattie Norvelle Rogers born July 26, 1935 in Mullins, SC.

Jennie met the love of her life, Whitney Joseph Broussard in Charleston, SC and following a wonderful courtship they married on April 27, 1957. The first part of their marriage was spent serving our country in military service in Newfoundland, Harlingen, Waco, Omaha, Biloxi, Tokyo, Charleston, San Antonio, Columbus Ga, Irving and finally settling in Arlington, Texas.

Jennie was proud of her work supporting the General of the Dallas Naval Air Station, leader of the ICC and a team at HUD before retiring in the mid nineties.

Jennie was a generous Southern Lady who loved cooking, cake decorating, Ikebana and being the wife of an Air Force Officer. She especially enjoyed being President of the Officer’s Wive’s Club and wife of the Base Commander. She also enjoyed entertaining and long road trips across the country and friends from the Southlake Senior Center.

Jennie devoted her life to her husband,children and grandchildren and most especially loved holiday traditions and beach vacations with them.

Jennie is preceded in death by her husband Whitney Joseph Broussard, parents and older brothers and sisters.

Jennie is survived by her children, Whitney Broussard and wife Drenda, Charles Broussard and wife Barbara, Susan Harriman and husband Morril, grandchildren Ashley and Brandon Cottone, Maggie and Brad Flaishans, Kathryn Bonesteel, Rachel and Kyle Dossey, Leah and Clark Shellhorse, Whitney Broussard and great grandchildren Gabe and William Flaishans and Brooklyn Cottone and her brother Frank Shaw and wife Susan.
