April M. Jenkins

Born: Passed:

April M. Jenkins, 64 of Cleveland, passed away Sunday, March 21, 2021.

April left behind her only child, Michael A. Jenkins (David C. Charles, Jr.); a sister, Alicia T.  Koepsel.  She was a loving aunt to many and a great friend to all.

Her love for life was contagious and her smile would brighten up any room.

April was full of laughs and she always knew how to turn anyone’s frown upside down.

She fought a long hard journey to beat colon cancer. To me, she is the best Super Hero you will ever meet.

In lieu of flowers, she would have wanted donations to be made in her honor to the American Cancer Society.

Rest easy Mommy, you will be missed very much.  I love you, Mike.

    You were an amazing mom April and I wish so badly I would have been able to see you before you passed. You were like a second mom growing up, all I can think of is you being out there taking so much time washing in waxing your car, lol, not to mention your sunburns you always got. I truly have no words but I know you’re not in pain and I think that is the best. You have done an amazing job as a mom and know with all the support Mike has he will continue to make you proud. Love you April and rest in heaven ( please give my mom a hug while you’re there) ❤️

    I met this wonderful woman will working at Sunoco and it was such a blessing. She had a smile to light up your day. And the bond with her son Michael was a bond most parents could only dream of.

Love and miss her
