Lea Kinkade Broussard

November 12, 1954 — January 28, 2022

Lea Kinkade Broussard, 67, of Cleveland, passed away Friday, January 28, 2022 at a local hospital.  She was born to the late E.L. “Buddy” and Lela Mae Coats Kinkade at the “home place” in Gober, TX on November 12, 1954.  After graduation from Bonham High School, Lea attended and graduated from East Texas Baptist College with a degree in Social Work.  Lea married Danny Broussard on May 22, 1977.  Together they worked with church youth and senior adult groups.  Through the next twenty plus years she worked as a social worker.

During those years she became a mother to Kristan and Joshua and cherished being a mother.  As the kids grew up, Lea decided to complete a Masters in Education from Lee University and began working and teaching special needs students at Cleveland High School. There she found a love for the students and developing learning skills in those students.  With the help of several teaching friends, Lea expanded those students' lives outside of the school and Bradley County.  She then became a grandmother to Samuel and Anna and her world revolved to enjoy those two more than anything. 

Lea loved the Lord and was a faithful servant.  She found great joy in traveling and making memories with her family and friends.  Lea will be missed by so many.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her two sisters, Barbara Jean Whaley and Helen Ruth Anderson.

Survivors include her husband, Danny Ray Broussard of Cleveland; children, Joshua Broussard and wife, Jessica of Clute, TX and Kristan Terry and husband, Eric of Cleveland; grandchildren, Samuel and Anna Terry of Cleveland; sister, Carolyn Little and husband, Wayne of Canton, TX; brothers, Terry Kinkade and wife, Courtney of Cleveland, Danny Kinkade and wife, Becky of Corsicana, TX and Marvin Kinkade and wife, Toni of Whitewright, TX; several nieces and nephews; and numerous devoted friends.
