Jessie Cormier

July 2, 1945 - January 12, 2023

Jessie Ann Cormier, 77, of Groves, died Thursday, January 12, 2023, at University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston. She was born July 2, 1945, in Port Arthur, to Nelian LeBlanc and LeRoy Cormier. Jessie was raised in Port Neches and was a lifelong member of St. Elizabeth Catholic Church. She was a 1963 graduate from Port Neches Groves High School.

In Jessie’s spare time, you could find her running the roads with her sisters/friends, chasing after three great-grandchildren, planting flowers in her flowerbed, or enjoying the sunshine while sitting in her rocking chair out on the deck. She loved spending time with her family more than anything, especially her sisters. She also loved volunteering on the Alter Flower Committee at church. Jessie looked forward to her monthly dinners with her graduation class (PNG ’63), and was excited for their upcoming 60th class reunion that is in the works for later this year.

Jessie was the world’s greatest mom, sister, friend, aunt, nannie, “Mufru” and Mawmaw to all who are blessed to have known her.

Survivors include her daughters, Michele Borres and partner, Kevin Hebert and Traci Klutts and husband, Kevin; grandchildren, Joey Durso; Troy Borres; Rikki Borres; Nikol Palermo and husband, Brett; Dylan Kitchell; and Austin Klutts; great-grandchildren, Michael Wales, Rhett Borres, and Annabelle Palermo; sisters, Royce Daigle and husband, Martin; Merlene Jeffries and husband, Ben; and Lorelei Johnson and husband, Robert; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents, LeRoy Cormier and Nelian LeBlanc Herpin and daughter, Linette Borres Kitchell.

A gathering of Ms. Cormier’s family and friends will be 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., with a Rosary recited at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, January 17, 2023, at Broussard’s, 505 North 12th Street, Nederland. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, January 18, 2023, at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church, 2006 Nall Street, Port Neches, with her interment to follow at Oak Bluff Memorial Park, Port Neches.

Memorial contributions in Ms. Cormier’s honor may be made to Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas, 2780 Eastex Freeway, Beaumont, Texas 77703, or on their website.

Jessie’s family would like to express their upmost appreciation to UTMB’s Neuroscience Critical Care Unit (NCCU) in Galveston, Texas. Thank you for the care and compassion that Jessie and our family received from the entire team of doctors, surgeons, nurses, respiratory therapists, and so many others that helped care for her while at their facility.

    O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell, and lead all souls to Heaven; especially those in most need of thy mercy. Amen.

Those were the days. We spent years living across the street from yall. My life has been so blessed with you in it. You always treated me like I was one of your daughters. And when I finally came back home from being gone for years, you had opened arms for me when I saw you. I always loved you, Jessie. Always! Praying for the family! Until we see you again, look on them every mow and then.
