Mrs. Stein was born on April 18, 1930 in Loreauville, LA to the late Armand and Corrine Trahan Dugas. She passed away on October 20, 2021 at her residence surrounded by her family.

Joyce was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who was devoted to her family. She enjoyed raising her children, canning fresh vegetables and cooking for them. She was known for her delicious seafood entrees, even though she never ate a single bite of seafood. For relaxation and quiet time she could be found with her word puzzles or watching the soap operas. A faithful servant of God, who attended mass daily, she leaves a beautiful legacy for her family to cherish.

Those left to cherish her memory are her daughter, Julie Stein Spell and husband Troy; four sons, Stevie Stein and wife Jessica; James Stein and wife Arlene; Chris Stein and Richard Stein and wife Lisa all of New Iberia; seven grandchildren, Cody Stein; Latrelle Babineaux and husband Dustin; Chelsea Stein Mullen and husband Jarod; Conner Stein and wife Kate; Noah Stein; Ryan Stein and Harley Comeaux and wife Jaci and seven great grandchildren, Gauge Babineaux; Avery Babineaux; Sutton Mullen; Evelie Mullen; Maly Mullen; Rowan Comeaux and Kanon Comeaux.

Joyce is now reunited with her parents, her husband, Asia Joseph Stein, Jr.; one brother, Antoine Dugas and her three sisters, Estelle Dugas; Therese Dugas and Stella D. Delcambre and her husband Percy.

Honored to serve as pallbearers are Cody Stein, Harley Comeaux, Conner Stein, Ryan Stein, Noah Stein and Dustin Babineaux. Jarod Mullen and Troy Spell will be honorary pallbearers.

Memorial donations may be made in her name to Hospice of Acadiana, 2600 Johnston Street, Suite 200, Lafayette, LA 70503 and or St. Marcellus Catholic Church, 6100 Avery Island Road, New Iberia, LA 70560.

The family would like to thank Hospice of Acadiana, especially Seth Porche, for the excellent care and devotion shown to their mother.

I will always remember how very sweet Ms. Joyce always was to me. She made me feel so welcome anytime I came by for a visit. I loved her stories and was always happy to hear how very much she loved her children and grandchildren. She was so proud of her great-grandchildren too! God Bless her! My deepest sympathies to all of her family.
