A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 2:00 PM on Monday, January 10, 2022 at St. Thomas More Catholic Church with Father Ed Duhon Celebrant and Deacon Gary Gaudin assisting. Burial will follow in St. Thomas More Cemetery. At the request of her family, visitation will be held from 9:00 AM until time of Services on Monday, January 10, 2022 at Quirk & Son Funeral Home of Eunice. A long-time resident of Eunice, Joyce was employed with Jantzen for 20 years. She was a loving and supportive wife, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, Godmother, and friend. Joyce was not a biological mother, however, many people considered her their surrogate mother. Joyce was an active gardner and tended to her yard and plants faithfully. She loved Cajun music and her Cajun heritage and enjoyed various opportunities to go Cajun dancing with her husband, James. She and James could be seen "cutting the rug" at Rocky's on many Saturday nights. Joyce also loved her family, especially the babies, and took many opportunities to cook and celebrate gatherings with her loved ones. She was funny, silly, sassy and full of life. She was quick-witted, a great conversationalist who never met a stranger, and always had a sparkle in her eye. Joyce had a generous spirit and a sensitive soul, and those who love her will grieve her absence. Joyce leaves behind a loving husband, James Doucet; James' children, David and Chuck Doucet, Michelle Pavy and Nicole Dupre; one brother, Virgil Bellard and sister-in-law Jackie; two sisters, Betty Broussard and brother-in-law John, and Faye Noel; and one sister-in-law Dot Bellard. She also leaves behind 4 nieces, Annette Bellard, Angie Hanks, Gayle Noel, and Angelle Bellard; 6 nephews, Bobby and Kenny Bellard, Greg and Marty Broussard, Todd and Danny Bellard; 9 great-nephews, 6 great-nieces, 4 great-great nephews, and one great-great niece. Joyce was preceded in death by her parents Harry and Luna Prudhomme Bellard, her brother Floyd Bellard, and her niece Lynne Noel.
