April Gardner, 54, Bruceville

With great sorrow our family announces the passing of our beloved Lorriane April Gardner, known to many online as Taily or Tailyanker. April was 54 when she passed suddenly on Sunday, February 26, 2023.

April was an RN working with medically fragile children in their homes before being forced to retire due to health issues. Her kind and generous spirit found an outlet by devoting herself to crafting and sharing the results with family, friends and charitable causes. She was always willing to lend an ear, a hand, or just a kind word to anyone who needed it and will be sorely missed.

She is survived by her husband Don of 21 years, 4 brothers, 1 sister, as well as aunts, nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind her mother-in-law, Shelley, who loved her like a daughter, her sister-in-law, Missy, her sisters of the heart, Ruth and Stacey, her 2 dogs and 3 cats, as well as many dear friends that she thought of as family.

A visitation will be held Tuesday March 7, 2023 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Fredrick & Son McClure-Utt Funeral Homes, Bruceville Chapel, with a service immediately following. Online condolences may be left for the family at www.fredrickandson.com.

Fredrick & Son McClure-Utt Funeral Homes, Bruceville Chapel, has been entrusted with the arrangements.
