Evangeline Funeral Home has been a landmark and historical fixture in New Iberia, Louisiana for many years. It has not always been a funeral home, as it was a private residence when built. The 2-story antebellum home was built between 1901 and 1904 by the Dietlein Family on its original site on East Saint Peter Street.
A growing business
In 1940, the home was purchased by the Cletus Landry family and opened in 1941 as Evangeline Funeral Home. As the years went by and business grew, locations were opened in St. Martinville in 1951 and Delcambre in 1960. In 1955, additional parlor space was added to the New Iberia location.
On November 6, 1986, Dalton L. Babineaux Jr. purchased the funeral home from the Landry family and operated the business until July 1, 1997.
Our funeral home today
In 2007, Evangeline Funeral Home joined the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. With more than a half century of service, Evangeline Funeral Home still upholds the tradition of exceptional service and care set forth by the Landry family while responding to the evolving needs of the New Iberia community.
"Our family has had several loved ones at your funeral home and we have always been very pleased, especially with this more recent one. We very much appreciated the kindness and compassion"
"Only problem was the 5% charged. Doing so put a financial bind on her children. People barely can afford life insurance without having a portion taken off the top. Son had to pay balance."
"The staff was professional & caring - they truly care about your needs & wishes! Thanks!"
"Too many good things to say than would fit it this space!"
"We are always treated like family"
