April Hale, 13, Casey County, KY (2007-2020)

April Hale, age 13, gained her heavenly wings on Saturday, May 2, 2020, at her home with her mother by her side.

There will be a "drive-thru" visitation on Monday, May 4, 2020, from 12noon-2pmET at McKinney-Brown Funeral Home. Visitors may pay their respects from their vehicles and will be given a memorial folder to keep.

April was born April 1, 2007. She was a student at Liberty Elementary School and formerly attended the Ferndale Baptist Church. She loved unicorns, monkeys, and Stitch the cartoon character. Her favorite colors were orange and teal.



She was a huge fan of Billie Eilish. Through the Make-A-Wish foundation, Billie Eilish sent April a video message with words of encouragement. Also, during the Christmas season of 2019, when April was fighting her illness, she asked for Christmas cards to help ease her burden. April received over 7,200 Christmas cards and gifts from all the over the world, including from France, Australia, Guam, Scotland, and the Netherlands to name only a few.

April is survived by her mother, Vickie Wilham (and Jayce Martin) of Liberty; father, William Hale (and Heather Hardesty) of Springfield; and brother, Jacob Hale of Springfield.

Due to recent requirements implemented by the Governor and The Funeral Directors Association of Kentucky, funeral services will be performed privately at McKinney-Brown Funeral Home with Bro. Dwight Coffman officiating.

The funeral service will be live-streamed on McKinney-Brown Funeral Home's Facebook page at 2:00 P.M. on Monday, May 4, 2020.

In lieu of flowers, donations are requested to help her family offset funeral expenses.
