April graduated from Machias Memorial High School. April worked for some time, cleaning houses and as a housekeeping attendant for Machias Motor Inn. April was an avid gardener and enjoyed working with her plants. She met the love of her life, her granddaughter, Delaynee Mae Joyce Harmon, who was an inspiration to her.
April is survived by a son, Jared Cline and daughter, Alyssa Gay, who both reside in Machiasport; older sister, Tammy Grass and husband, Dale, of Calais, and their children, Kendra, Heath, Reese, Constance with her companion, Sean Scribner, and son, Noah, and Brandie with wife, Carilla Fritz; her brother, Edward and his son, Evan, of Whitneyville; and her parents, Cheryl and Warren Gay of Machias. She will be greatly missed by her family, friends and most of all by her precious granddaughter, Delaynee.
