April had an infectious laugh that could brighten any day. She had a big heart for others and a big smile that brightened when she talked about her children. They were her pride and joy and she loved to brag about their accomplishments. She was equally proud to be a “Nonnie” to Hindley and Landyn. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
