There is a name written in the Lamb's Book of life. It is Betty F. Broussard. On Sunday, March 31, 1940, in Lake Charles, a baby girl, given the name Betty Hayes Franklin, was born to Hayes and Jacindy (Drake) Franklin.

She expressed her faith in God and dedicated her life to Christian service at the age of 8 in 1948, under the pastorage of the Rev. W.C. Clark, at Christian Baptist Church. Betty attended First Ward Colored School, Second Ward Colored School, and graduated from W.O. Boston High School in 1958. She graduated from McNeese State College in 1962. She married Leonard G.

Key Elementary in the Calcasieu Parish School System. From 1979-1987 she operated a child care center. Betty was a faithful, dedicated and devoted servant of God. She was a member of Christian Baptist Church where she worked diligently in the Esther Joubert Circle No. 6 in the Women's Missionary Department. She also was a member of the Christian Baptist Church Sanctuary Choir.
