Theresa Badgett

Theresa “Dyce” Bordeaux Badgett was born September 28, 1928, as the youngest daughter of Alfred and Mary Bordeaux. She always treasured the memories of growing up on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota surrounded by a large extended family and good friends. With one foot in the traditions of the Lakota Sioux and another in rapidly evolving post World War II America, she embarked on a lifelong adventure marked with significant contributions to her country, community, friends and family.

After graduating from Mount Saint Scholastica College, Theresa was appointed to the US Air Force Officer Candidate School and served as a communication officer at the Pentagon and Strategic Air Command Headquarters during the Korean War. Later, she began a twenty year career in the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) at Intermountain Indian School, progressing through a series of assignments in Albuquerque and serving as Chief Budget Officer for the BIA in Washington, DC. 

Her children will always be grateful for having had a devoted, strong, and inspiring mother who provided a happy home. Mom’s love, guidance, and good example provided an excellent foundation for our lives.

In retirement, Theresa’s years were filled with travel, adventures with like-minded contemporaries, artistic endeavors, bridge games, and care of her beloved schnauzers, SuzyQ and Tuffy. 

Theresa was preceded in death by her brothers, Jim, Alfred “Snow”, Melvin, and Louie Bordeaux, and by her sisters, Julia Lambert and “Winnie” Wood. Theresa is survived by two children, Mel (Nancy) Badgett and Julie (Paul) Patti and five grandsons. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Theresa passed away peacefully from natural causes on Tueday, March 8. On Tuesday, March 15, a funeral Mass was held for her followed by a burial at Santa Fe National Cemetery.
