Joyce Kay Bader, 79, passed away May 9, 2022, at the Hot Springs Memorial Hospital in Thermopolis, Wyo., with her loving husband Dale Bader by her side. She was born May 20, 1942, in Cass Lake, Minn., to LeRoy Marion and Iris Leone (Cravens) Applegate. She was little sister to her brother Lynn and big sister to her brother Larry. During her childhood, Joyce's family moved to Gering, Neb., and Powell, Wyo., where Joyce would start her elementary education. A few years later, the family made one final move, and put down roots in Basin, Wyo. It was there that Joyce graduated in 1961. Throughout school, she enjoyed being a cheerleader and was a carhop at the Big B drive-in. She loved roller skating and ice skating and was a pleasure to watch as she was very talented.
