"More Than 125 Years Of Time Honored Values"

EST. 1889

A Family Concern

In the late 1800's, Alex Broussard, owner of A. Broussard Livery Stable, opened the first funeral parlor in Southeast Texas. That first wood framed parlor was soon replaced by a large brick facility in downtown Beaumont which still stands today. Later, the family firm moved to a large, stately home at the corner of Calder Avenue and Forest Street. In 1958, they moved to one of their present locations in a quiet neighborhood on McFaddin in Beaumont.

Continuing Our Traditions

In this age of constant corporate funeral home buyouts and takeovers, families find comfort in knowing there is still a family owned and operated firm with five generations of compassion, continuity, and dignity. The Broussard family feels strongly about their traditions and their family's obligation to maintain both the high standards of excellence in service and their ability to serve the entire community by always keeping their services affordable.

Elna Hopper Berard

Elna Hopper Berard

Elna Jean Hopper was born March 29, 1927, in Crossett, Arkansas. She was the youngest of five children born to Mary Evelyn Earnest and Elmer Lee Hopper.  She was a graduate of Crossett High School. After high school, she spent several years with the telephone company as an operator. Jean was a free spirit and a pioneer for independent women, even before the women’s movement took place!  She traveled to live in several places, including London, England, Pensacola, Florida and finally settling in Beaumont, Texas. In fact, she remained independent until her last days; still cooking, cleaning and managing her home at the age of ninety-three! Even though Jean was not able to travel in her later years, she never lost her love for adventure and the excitement of a good football game-always loyal to her Arkansas Razorbacks and Dallas Cowboys. Yet her true joy remained in her Baptist faith and always supported Dr. Charles Stanley Ministries. We will miss her dearly♥ A...
