ODOC support staff will be at Oklahoma City Community Corrections Center to assist the men and women who worked with Broadus in coping with her death.
“Ms. Broadus was a veteran of the U.S. Army who served her country and the people of Oklahoma honorably,” Crow said.
“She was a dedicated, loyal team member to her coworkers. Whenever the facility needed someone to pick up a shift, she would volunteer – no matter the time or day.”

ODOC human resources staff have been in touch with Broadus’ family to help them with her death benefits as an agency employee.
