Jean Annemarie McQuilkin, mother, daughter and sister, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 55 in Elmendorf, TX.

She will be forever remembered by her sons, Garrett Broussard and Taylor Broussard; her daughter, Lauren Broussard; her daughter-in-law, Kaelie Broussard; her son-in-law, Johnny Lozano; her older siblings, Karen Turner and Kyle McQuilkin; her brother-in-law, Tom Turner; her sister-in-law, Sandra McQuilkin; and her mother, Rose McQuilkin. Jean will also be deeply missed by her extended family and dear friends. She is preceded in death by her beloved father, Stephen McQuilkin, as well as her grandparents, Raymond and Lillian Thompson and Howard "Mac" and Mildred McQuilkin, with whom she has been finally reunited.

Born to parents Stephen and Rose McQuilkin on August 18, 1963 in Chicago, IL, Jean had a deep-seated passion for all animals and devoted much of her youth to training and showing horses. As an adult, Jean launched a nonprofit rescue organization, Pet Connections, through which she was responsible for the rescue and rehabilitation of countless animals who yearned for a second chance.
