Bettye was born on January 2, 1941 in the community of Middle Creek, Louisiana. She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Iota, Louisiana. She loved her church and church family dearly. Bettye enjoyed gardening, raking leaves, cooking, swinging on the porch, feeding her birds, reading her Bible, and listening to Gospel music.
Above all, she was a beloved wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend who loved spending time with her family. Bettye’s memory will live on in all who loved her, especially her beloved husband of forty-one years, Leroy Broussard of Iota; her three loving daughters, Pamela Brown and husband, Bennett, of Iota, LA, Susan Crochet of Houma, LA, and Stephanie Istre and husband, Mike, of Mermentau, LA; her brothers, Russell Durrett of Plainview, LA, and Dwight Durrett and wife, Teresa, of Plainview, LA; her sister, Linda Ulmer and husband, Mel, of Magee, MS; and her sister-in-law, Eula Durrett of Plainview, LA.
