For twelve years April worked at the medical desk for Farmers Insurance. She had also worked as a buyer for a machine shop for many years. In 1997, April took a medical retirement. Since that time she had been a homemaker. A few years ago Gerald was fortunate enough to retire and they cherished the additional time they were able to spend together. April was a devoted wife.

In her free time April enjoyed writing and she had completed the novel, “The Mystery of Hampton House” although she refused to get it published. She loved to work on the computer and she was very talented at editing and photo shopping pictures. Scrapbooking was also a favorite pastime.
