Queenie was born in Alexandria, Louisiana and was a graduate of Bolton High School. During her working career she was a teacher's aide at Lessie Moore Elementary School, the first store manager for Weiss and Goldring in the Alexandria Mall and retired from Cenla Credit Union as a credit counselor.
She was a member of Catholic Daughters- Court of Bishop Greco, No. 2072, a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Pineville for over 55 years and a former member of the church choir.
Mrs. Brossett loved playing cards and dominoes, cooking, sewing and reading. One of her many joys was having company over for a cup of coffee and a piece of cake but her greatest passion was taking care of her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She especially loved telling them stories to teach them a lesson and praying the rosary with them.
She will now be reunited in Heaven with her beloved husband, James H. Brossett, Sr.; son, Marvin L. Brossett; parents, John F. and Bertha Ashley Cupp; brothers, John, Ralph, George and Russell and her sisters, Gwenett, Althea and Ruby.
A loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Queenie leaves behind her precious children, son, James H. Brossett, Jr. and wife, Lydia; daughter, Frances Herrington and husband, Bill; stepdaughter, Geraldine Stokes; and daughter-in-law, Rita Brossett. Her memory will surely be carried on by her grandchildren, Renee Brossett, Joseph Casey Brossett, Michael Joseph Brossett, Elizabeth Broyles, William Herrington, Christian Herrington, Katherine Herrington; her step grandchildren, Robin, Cindy and David and her great grandchildren, Devan Brossett and Mikayla Gill. Also left to cherish her memory are a brother, Marion Cupp and wife, Tippy; sisters, Daisy Mayeau, Monette Paul and a host of other family members and friends.
