Sandra Marie Rogers Broom was the third child born to the late Bertha Gibson Rogers and
Benjamin Rogers on Jan. 6, 1960, in Lafayette. She went home to her father’s house on Sunday, Nov. 20, 2011.
“SisAnn,” as she was affectionely known by many, was a loving mother, wife, grandmother, sister, cousin and friend. She never met
a person that didn’t love to be in her presence. “SisAnn” was baptized at an early age at Our Mother of Mercy Catholic Church in Church Point where she also attended school and lived across the street. “SisAnn” grew up in Church Point and moved to
Lake Charles where she graduated from Marion High School in 1978. She lived with her family, Patsy and Austin Citizen, and their sons, Lenzy, Derwin, Shannon and Chris. Lake Charles was where she met her husband, David Broom, Sr. David was in the
U.S. Army and they traveled and lived in Germany and throughout the United States. From their union, they have two beautiful children, David, Jr. “Lil David” and Destiny, both of whom she loved more than life itself. Her children were her pride and
joy. “SisAnn” was a certified nursing assistant at Bayne Jones Army Community Hospital at Fort Polk. She was a wonderful cook and she was infamous for her gumbo in the Leesville/Fort Polk area.
Her memories will be cherished by her
husband of many years, David Broom, Sr.; one son, David (Margie) Broom, Jr.; one daughter, Destiny Broom; five grandchildren, Ariel Thomas, Amaya Thomas, Antrel Hopkins, Davion Brtek, and De’Andre Brtek. Also left to cherish her memories are her
stepmother, Betty Rogers (Harold) Boudreaux of Opelousas; siblings, Veronica Faye (George) Joseph of Lake Charles, Malcolm Rogers of San Antonio, Mary JoHanna Rogers (John) Brooks of Clophus, N.M., John Jarrod (Jennifer) Rogers of Yorktown, Va., and
Benjamin (Dana) Rogers from Cankton; and other relatives, in-laws and friends.
