Marcelle was a faithful and devout Catholic and a lifelong parishioner of St. Bernard Catholic Church, where she served as a Eucharistic Minister to the homebound and was a member of the Altar Society, Catholic Daughters, and a local Rosary group. She and her husband, Earl, were instrumental in helping to organize the opening of St. Bernard Chapel of Perpetual Adoration, which was completed in 1984. They remained faithful adorers there for many years to follow.
An avid fan of Breaux Bridge High School football, she loved watching her son, Paul, coach on Friday nights – she was his #1 Fan! As a pastime, she loved traveling, reading, doing word puzzles, cooking, and spending time with her family and friends. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Earl Joseph Broussard, Sr.; daughter, Suzanne Louise "Suzie" (Carl) Marks; and her mother, Virginie Berge Mondet.
Pallbearers will be Lyle Champagne, Lance Marks, Jake Marks, Ryan Latiolais, Brice Broussard, and Blake LeBlanc.
Honorary pallbearers will be her two sons, Jay and Paul Broussard, Clifford Hebert, Randy Anderson, Scott Angelle, and her sons-in-law, Douglas “Gee” Champagne, Barry Latiolais, Jeff LeBlanc, and Carl Marks.

Warren and Benjamin Degatur, Wendy Fuselier, PA, and their staff, Karen McFaul, St. Martin Hospital and their staff, Dr. Adam Kennedy, Ochsner Lafayette General Orthopedic Hospital and their staff, and all of her caregivers that provided love and care to her for so many years.
