Joyce M. Rains

Joyce (Mitchell) Rains, of Many, Louisiana, passed away at Many Healthcare on Monday, April 1, 2024, at the age of 83. She was born to Arley Mitchell  and Mary Magdaline (Craig) Mitchell on March 13, 1941, in Fort Jessup, Louisiana.

She loved her family and friends very dearly. Her greatest outpouring of love was shown to her furry baby, Riley. Riley had been a part of Joyce’s life for 10+years during which time she had become spoiled with unconditional love and companionship.

Left to cherish her memory are her daughter, Mona Murray and husband, Stanley of Florien, LA; her sons, Brad Jordan of Florien, LA, and Kenneth “Dubo” Rains and wife, Renee of Marthaville, LA; her brother, W.
