A native of Loreauville and resident of New Iberia, Geraldine passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 9, 2020 surrounded by family.

Born on November 24, 1927 to the late Mernier and Mattie Rose Broussard, Geraldine was one of two children. Better known as Jerry to friends and family, she loved her family and took care of them with all her heart. As a stay-at-home wife and mother, she found time to care for extended family and friends, cooking and baking for them. Her pecan filled cakes with the white icing were quite memorable. She was also a licensed beautician, and many friends and family gathered in her kitchen for haircuts and colors. Jerry will be remembered fondly. A special thanks goes out to caregivers, Rita Rollins, caring for Jerry 11 years, and Tessa Green, as well as Seth Porche and Hospice of Acadiana for their diligent service. The family couldn’t have done it without them.

She is survived by her daughter, Ellen Delcambre Wilson (John) of Ponchatoula; son, Paul Larry Delcambre, Jr. (Arlene) of New Iberia; grandchildren, Elizabeth Wilson Growcott (Mark) and Wesley Paul Wilson (Jessica); and five great grandchildren, Haley Higgins, Jett Wilson, Marcelle Wilson, Park Wilson, and Elliott Growcott.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband, Paul Larry Delcambre, Sr.; parents, Mernier and Mattie Rose Broussard; and brother, Edmond Malcolm Broussard.
