April was employed at Paddock Publications (The Daily Herald) for over 40 years.  She was known for her compassion and generosity.  No one ever went away hungry or thirsty from her house.   Although she had said one place she never wanted to live was the Chicago area, she happily raised her family in Palatine, IL living in the same house for over 50 years.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Presbyterian Church of Palatine, 800 E Palatine Rd, Palatine, IL 60074.
