A native and resident of New Iberia, Flora "Terry" Schwing Broussard was born on December 13, 1923 to the late John Elmer Schwing and Anna Blanchet Schwing.  She was a 1941 graduate of Mt. Carmel Academy, and obtained her bachelor’s degree in Home Economics from SLI in 1945. In her younger years, she was a Pink Lady at Iberia General Hospital, worked as a bank teller, and was also a receptionist and dispatcher at her husband's veterinary practice for many years. Terry served as Eucharistic Minister at St. Peter's Catholic Church, where she was a longtime faithful member, and was a member of the Grotto Rosary Group. She was a talented artist that loved to paint, and was big into genealogy. She was an avid sports fan, and always pulled for the underdog. Affectionately known as "The Lawn Mower Lady," Terry loved to cut grass, and was often seen cutting grass at 9:00pm if she thought it would rain the next day! Mrs. Broussard was most proud of her family, and she will be deeply missed.


She is survived by six sons, George P. Broussard, Jr. (Tina) of New Iberia, Edwin S. Broussard, III (Alice) of Forest Hill, LA, Thomas Broussard (Pamela) of New Iberia, Daniel S. Broussard (fiancée' Michelle) of Jeanerette, Kenneth J. Broussard of New Iberia, and Benedict "Ben" J. Broussard of New Iberia; four grandchildren, Shawn Broussard Reaux (Jeff Jr. ), Thomas Broussard, Jr. (fiancée' Aimee Gaudet), Beau Broussard, and Dustin Broussard; four great grandchildren, Justin, Austin, and Sydney Reaux, and Brooklyn Broussard; and numerous loving nieces and nephews.


In addition to her parents, Terry was preceded in death by her husband, Dr. George P. Broussard; six brothers, George Schwing, Pierre F. Schwing, Sr., Jules Schwing, Fr. John Schwing, Paul Schwing, James William Schwing, Sr.; and three sisters, Anna Louise Schwing Allain, Mary Schwing Robbins, and Henri Schwing Dougherty.


Pallbearers will be her sons, Tommy, George, Edwin, Daniel, Kenneth and Ben Broussard.


The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to Heart of Hospice, especially nurses Rachel Spoon and Geanette Pommier; and her sitters, Edie Bonvillian, Jenny Perero, and Brenda DeSoto for extraordinary care and compassion.


Memorial contributions may be made to St. Peter's Catholic Church, 108 E. St. Peter St., New Iberia, LA 70560. 


Pellerin Funeral Home, 502 Jefferson Terrace Blvd., New Iberia, LA 70562, (337-365-3331).
