Broussard, Clinnell Parker. Early morning Thursday, 8 March 2018, Clinnell Parker Broussard, 93 years of age, passed peacefully into the presence of her Lord Jesus Christ in St. Petersburg, Florida after a long illness. Tragically widowed early in life, having lost her beloved husband David Hogan, she courageously raised three children, each to adulthood. Further tragedy marked her life as she in turn lost two adult children, David, Jr. and Molly, and later her second husband, Arren. These losses did not define her life, but enhanced her appreciation of it. All knew her as a lady of grace and charm, eager to show love with a home cooked meal and a smile radiating acceptance. Her culinary creations are sought after family recipes. Throughout her life she expressed her inner beauty through sewing, creating exquisite dresses adorned with intricate designs – now family heirlooms. The quintessential memory of Clinnell is the lady herself: the mother, the aunt, the sister, the friend. When you were with Clinnell, you were with an unforgettable soul. She will be missed. She will always be loved. She is survived by her daughter, Lt. Colonel Suzanne H. Haupt, her brother, Reverend Dr. Denton R. Parker Sr., grandchildren, SSGT David M. Haupt, USAF, Joshua D. Haupt, and Sarah H. Steele, and seven great-grandchildren. A Celebration of Life service will be held at the Stillmore United Methodist in Stillmore, Georgia, 219 East 3rd Avenue, Stillmore, Georgia on 24 March 2018 at 11 AM. SorensenFuneralhome.com

    I love your description Radiating! The times I was with your Mom, she made me feel so accepted and it was if we had been long time friends. Again thinking of the song “I’ve just seen Jesus” the twinkling eyes & radiating smile on your Mom’s face must be something fantastic. I’m happy for her but sad for your family as they have hadto say goodbye (for now). Your Mom and I talked a lot about sewing and her many creations. Hope this is not too irreverent, but I wonder if the heavenly inhabitants will now get smocked robes!!!??? Love your family, mourn & celebrate with you

    What a beautiful obituary expressing Clinnell’s beauty, grace, and love! This is how I remember her myself. I have precious memories of her …. it’s hard to believe so many years have passed since I was able to see her. For that I am so sorry. Sometimes life’s circumstances do not allow for such. Please know how much I loved her. I know my dad, James (Jim) Knight, sure did as well. Your sweet family will be in my prayers in the coming days. I do rejoice with you as she is now embraced by our heavenly Fathet! Much love to you❣️Love Kim Knight Elliott

    I remember Clinnell with a happy heart. She was my first Adult friend. As a young newly married woman she took me under her loving arms and tough me so much. We sent many hours visiting over the fence and in her kitchen, the best neighbor I’ve ever had. Suzanne was our first sons baby sitter,.I was there when they came to tell her about her son, Davids accident and death. God sent her Arren to help her with Molly and her cancer and death. Arren was so sweet and they made the cutest couple. She was the strongest woman I’ve ever met, and showed me how to face and servive the hard times life gives us. She gave with her heart and was always there to help no matter what was needed. . She was a special gift from God and one I will always hold dear to my hear. To her family I send love and friendship, you were so blessed to have her as a Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother

    I was very blessed to have grown up in the Hogan family household and have Aunt Clinnell and Uncle David as my Godparents. I have very fond memories of Aunt Clinnell as a small child when we would come to Mobile during the Summer for our family vacation. In the South, I remember everyone being so hospitable as we would visit all the Aunts and Uncles, and Cousins homes in Mobile. I particularly remember visiting Aunt Clinnell’s home and playing with all my cousins in the swimming pool. At that time David and Molly were still alive and I looked up to them. As I graduated and started my adult life, I slowly saw less of Aunt Clinnell but she always stayed in my heart. I pray that she is reunited with her husband David Hogan, whom left us too young, and her children Molly and David. Blessings for a joyous and happy reunion; and I pray one day that I will be able to join those family members who have gone before me in our Lord’s kingdom. Love, Florence Hogan, niece of Aunt Clinnell.
