Join us in mourning Joyce McCarrick as she passed peacefully in the early morning of May 14, 2021 in the North Big Horn Hospital in Lovell. Joyce was born on September 5, 1941 to Butch and Annabell Gentry in St. Louis, Missouri. She was the oldest of her four siblings, brother Bub, and sisters Donna and Diana Gentry.
Growing up as a teenager she loved to listen to rock and roll music. Before graduating high school at Wentzville High School in Missouri, she became the president of Elvis Presley's Rock ‘N Roll Kats Fan Club. In 1960, she was invited to Graceland to crown Elvis as the King of Rock N Roll. Over the years before Elvis died, she was invited back several times to meet with Elvis at the concerts she attended. Shortly after graduating, she married Kenny Click and they had three children together. Tina, HK, and Liza Click. Racing hot rods, riding and repairing motorcycles, and showing horses became the family’s past times.
In 1977, the family moved westward to Wyoming where they made Lovell their new home. Joyce loved to hunt, fish, and see all the sites Wyoming had to offer. The wild horse range and horses was one of her favorite places. She enjoyed walking in the hills and rock hunting all over the state. Joyce will be sorely missed for her big smile and contagious laugh by her family and friends.
