Maurice loses long time clerk, Judy Broussard
Whether you visited or called Maurice City Hall, chances are the first face you saw or voice you heard was Judy Broussard’s.
She served as a friendly welcome. It is that friendliness that resonated with everyone who knew Broussard.
Family and friends are now mourning her loss, as Broussard, 69, passed away Sunday due to complications from COVID-19.
Her daughter, Vermilion Parish Registrar of Voters Tina Marie Broussard, said her mother impacted so many people.
“She was a staple of this parish both politically and personally,” Tina Marie Broussard said. “The world lost the best person.”
Judy Broussard, a resident of Maurice and graduate of Abbeville High School, worked for State Rep. Sammy Theriot from 1993 to ‘96 and then for State Rep. Mickey Frith from ‘96 to 2008.
It was in ‘08 that she became a clerk at Maurice City Hall.
Maurice Mayor Wayne Theriot said he knew Broussard well before he became mayor in 2010.
“She was a tremendous person to me,” Mayor Theriot said. “I knew her personally for many years. She was extremely friendly. When you walked into the city hall, and you would see her, it was almost like seeing your mama.
“Mrs. Judy was a valued member of our family. Your prayers are asked for her family during these trying times.”
Vincent Funeral Home in Abbeville is handling the funeral arrangements, which will be held on Thursday from 9 a.m. until time of service.
Services will be held Thursday at 2 p.m. at St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church in Abbeville.
