Emily Claire Provost Broussard Dobbs (aka Mom, Momems, Momils, Memoms, Mims and M&M) met Jesus Christ Saturday, June 6, 2020, along with meeting her son Kim who died at age 10, her husband Chuck, parents, sisters and brother, and many other friends and family.
She was a mother of nine and adored by all.
This woman was simply beautiful with so much love such that she made each and everyone of her offspring feel like her favorite.
We were all her favorite. She was absolutely our favorite.
She loved like Christ did and does and was a light to all when times were dark.
She was always there for us. Always.
She opened her home to anyone who came through her door as well as grandchildren who lived with her.
We look forward to honoring her legacy for the rest of our lives and wait for the day to see her again in Heaven.
We love you our dearest Mom, Momems, Momils, Memoms, Mims and M&M.
Emily was a true matriarch, leaving behind her children: Niki and Larry Breedlove and their 3 children; Patti and Danny Castille and their 3 children; predeceased by her son Kim Jude Broussard; Terri and Tom Vogds and their daughter; Lori Broussard; Sindi and Bruce Terrien and their 2 children; Marci and Mark Simpson and their 8 children; Brit and Barbara Broussard and their 3 children; and Jody and Martie Broussard and their daughter and her stepdaughter Pam Perkins.
That would be 21 grandchildren, 8 grandchildren-in-law, 16 great-grandchildren.
She was the wife of Charles H. Dobbs and George S. Broussard.
She was the daughter of Velma and Emile Provost, sister of Laura Ann Provost and Emile Provost, Jr (Son) and his wife Myrthie and many nieces and nephews, countless friends and her newest fans at Holland Place Assisted Living and Heart of Texas Hospice.
She was deeply loved and will be immensely missed.
How appropriate that she left us on D-Day as we are sure she is “storming” the beaches in Heaven right now to the point of St. Peter needing to call Jesus for back up so he might get a word in edgewise!
We love you Momems!!
