In memory of
Joel Roy Barnett
Joel Roy Barnett died on November 14, 2020. Joel was born in New Orleans. She was predeceased by her parents, Alphonse Kenison Roy and Inez Marie Folse, her six siblings, and by her son, Stewart R. Barnett, III, (Capt., USN, retired) and daughter, Melissa Elliott. She is survived by her husband of 72 years, Stewart Roland Barnett, Jr. (Tootie), and her daughters, Joel Barnett, Robin Robison (Mark) and Nancy Marshall (Tom). She is also survived by a grandson, six granddaughters, and one great-grandson. Joel graduated from the Academy of the Sacred Heart and attended Newcomb College. She was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta. Joel taught at Sacred Heart, the Jewish Community Center and St. George's. She worked at Piccadilly Circus and was the operating room liaison at Ochsner. Mom enjoyed sailing and racing with Tootie. Together they ran many regattas on Lake Pontchartrain, the Mississippi Gulf Coast, in Chicago and in Rockport, MA as well as the annual New Orleans to Pensacola race. Joel was an avid fan of Mardi Gras. She could be found on the street yelling for beads and doubloons. Mom introduced her kids and grandkids to card games, most notably Oh Hell, and many a family gathering was spent in raucous play. St. Peter will have his hands full now that all seven Roy siblings are together again! A Memorial Mass was held at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church on Thursday, November 19, 2020. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Ochsner Healthcare Heroes at ochsner.org/joel. All Covid-19 restrictions will be in effect, including wearing of masks and social distancing.
