April Kell
1961 - 2014

April Kell of Tehachapi, passed away at the age of 53. She was born on April 23, 1961, in Elgin, Ill., to parents Norman and Muriel Kell, one of five loving children.

In her high school years, April was a very talented actress. Her hobby was crocheting, something she loved doing. Everyone loved April and her outspoken personality. It would always keep people laughing. Her profession was as a Dental Assistant, a job she loved and of which she was very proud.

In 1987 April was in a tragic car accident and suffered a broken back and massive head injuries. So strong and such a fighter, she miraculously survived.

In 2002 she gave birth to her daughter, Ashley, the love of her life.

As years went, by the pain April suffered from her accident turned her bright days into darkness and deep depression. So she called to God to set her free, and now she is resting peacefully in Heaven, a place where she wanted to be.

April is survived by her daughter, Ashley Kell Eaton; mother, Muriel Kell; sisters, Lori Nelson, Debi and her husband, Jim Eaton; brothers, Steve Kell and Sean Kell; nieces, Lindsay and Kalee Nelson; nephews, Taylor and Shane Kell, Rich and Ryan and his wife, Jessica Eaton; great-nephews, Ryan, Colten, Gavin, Mason, and Nolan; and great-niece, Lauren.

We all will cherish the years and memories and the love we have for you, and you will live in our hearts forever.
