Will a hen that stops laying still go broody?

I have a Buff that's getting older and will probably stop laying soon. She's a great mother and if she'll still potentially hatch chicks for me she'll be worth keeping around/feeding, I'm hoping she will be, she's great.

Oh yes. In fact, some people claim that non-laying hens are better mothers and go broody more often than those who are still laying!
