This sure sounds familiar. I had the same problem with my 1994 Buick Century, 4 cyl, 118,000 miles.
I disconnected the torque converter clutch plug but plugged it back in. Then I drove 1500 miles on the highway (interstate) and back (another 1500 miles). My car has not shuddered or stalled when I slow down since! That was one month ago. Don't know why, maybe it just needed exercise. I usually just drive the car around town.
Good luck with your problem. I understand that with the plug unplugged your gas mileage will/may decrease.
