Broussard's Mortuary - Beaumont, TX (30+ days ago)


In this age of constant corporate funeral home buyouts and takeovers, families are comforted by the knowledge that there is still a family owned and operated firm in Southeast Texas, now in its fifth generation. The Broussard family feels strongly about their obligation to maintain both the high standards of service to families and their ability to serve the entire community by always keeping their services affordable. The Broussard family gives personal attention and care to each family they serve. They distinguish themselves with their capacity for understanding, their many years of experience, and caring staff.With six locations, the company serves all of Southeast Texas: two facilities in Beaumont, and locations in Nederland, Winnie, Silsbee and Kountze. In 2004, they added their own Crematorium to better serve families who desire cremation and to give them a nice family atmosphere for a final committal service.
