Florene “Flo” Brouillette

March 25, 1926 — October 27, 2019

Florene “Flo” Brouillette, 93, of Natchitoches, LA, passed away peacefully on October 27, 2019, after a long illness, surrounded by loved ones.  Flo was born in Echo, Louisiana to John E. and Florence Borell on March 25, 1926. She married the late A.J. Brouillette in 1944 and was a resident of Natchitoches since 1956. Prior to retiring, Flo worked alongside A.J. as an office manager for his land survey business. She loved to travel with A.J. and they were fortunate to have visited many places in the United States, Canada, and Europe. She was a devout Catholic who was a member of the Minor Basilica of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and the Thursday afternoon rosary group. Flo had many talents. She loved to sew, paint, knit do embroidery and needlepoint. She was a former member of the Bernina Sewing Club of Bossier City and an accomplished seamstress who crafted heirloom pieces. She lovingly made beautiful, intricately sewn christening gowns and bonnets for family members as well as for donation to the Catholic Church gift shop. For many years she was an active member of the Laureate Chi chapter of Beta Sigma Phi. She enjoyed the friendship and comradery of her “sisters” and their many social events and charitable projects. Flo was preceded in death by her parents, husband A.J., son Lynn Brouillette, M.D., grandsons John E. Brouillette and Michael Yaghoubian and daughter-in-law, Dawn Brouillette. She is survived by three children: Emily Yaghoubian and her husband, Michael Neklutin of Natchitoches; Bruce Brouillette, M.D., and his wife, Marcia, of Benton, LA; and Luke Brouillette of Natchitoches; as well as eight grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and many nieces, nephews, and friends.   Visitation will be held at the Blanchard-St. Denis Funeral Home from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm, on Friday, November 1, 2019, with a rosary service at 6:30 pm. A mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 am on Saturday, November 2, 2019, at the Minor Basilica of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. Services will be conducted by Rev. Luke LaFleur. Entombment will follow at the Catholic Cemetery Mausoleum.   The family wishes to extend their utmost gratitude to Flo’s devoted caregivers, the nurses of Hospice of Natchitoches, and Dr. Kathleen Kautz.
