Born on November 23, 1936, in Port Arthur, Texas, she was the daughter of Jules and Matilda Broussard and Viola Broussard and was one of thirteen siblings. Maw-maw always had a story, or joke to tell about her childhood memories, and would often stay up late at night just to get more playing time to beat her sister. Glenda score on the game they both loved to play. In 1958, on Valentine’s Day, Jeanette and Doug Egan married and built a beautiful life and family with their three daughters, Frankie, Wendy and Stormy. As the years went by, Maw-maw and Paw-paw moved to the lake where the best memories were made with grandchildren and great grandchildren. Maw-maw loved sitting on the back porch with a cup of hot coffee, loved working in the garden, going to the casino, shopping, and most of all-a good, long nap. She was not only voted most beautiful in school but, was the queen and matriarch to our family.
