History

Evangeline Funeral Home has been an 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.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"Stephanie was the absolute best. She made a time that should have been a nightmare for us something that we can look back upon and cherish. With kindness, sincerity and loving patience she guided us through the process of getting my husband laid to rest. She went above and beyond what you would expect. She truly cared for us and made sure we had everything we needed. Even though this was a little thing, she waited for me on the porch when I had to pick up my husband's ashes so I would not have to walk into the funeral home alone. That was the kind of caring service she provided. I cannot thank her enough for being there for us."
