Mrs. Broughton passed away Wednesday, March 13, 2019.

Anderson and Catherine Anderson.

Mrs. Broughton was the oldest of six children. Willeen met and married Mr. Chester Broughton from Monroeville, Alabama.

She worked at Dooley’s Daycare for many years and, later, was employed by Sky Chef Airlines in Nashville.

A time to rejoice: Willeen attended Cornelia Regional High School and accepted the Lord as her savior and joined Shady Grove Baptist Church. While in Nashville, she joined St. Matthews Baptist Church where she served on the usher board, as well as a mother of the church. Her pastor there was Pastor Armstrong.
