April Hosch Pic.jpg

April Nayere Hosch was the first born to her parents, Terry and Rosalind Hosch in El Paso, Texas on January 11, 1982. She accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at an early age. April was preceded in death by both of her grandmothers Barbara Jean Dunn and Grace Williams, her grandfathers Robert Russell and Charles Hosch, and her big brother, Antoine White. Having a parent in the Armed Forces resulted in April being raised in Hawaii, Germany then Chicago, where she remained until the age of  thirteen. At thirteen, along with her mother and her sisters, April relocated to Kansas City, Missouri. In Kansas City, April attended Bingham Middle School, Westport then Raytown South High School. She later gained her General Education Equivalency Diploma through Denison Job Corps in Denison, Iowa. Her studies focused on Business Office Technology Systems. Returning to Kansas City, she was certified as a Nurses Aide with the goal of entering the Registered Nursing Program at Penn Valley Community College. Although her health was getting worse, April continued to pursue her dreams and goals. Multi-talented, she participated actively in the Marching Cobras Drill Team of Kansas City, Missouri. She loved to draw, sketch, cook and even play basketball. She was also skilled as a hairdresser and make-up artist. April´s unique and genuine spirit was evident in her many photos and modeling pictures. Loving music and fashion in her spare time, she never neglected  to help her family and friends. She was selfless and giving. Spirited and a strong advocate, she became a voice for other patients advocating for quality treatment for Sickle Cell patients. She  ultimately raised support for research and funding to find a cure for the disease of Sickle Cell Anemia. April never missed an opportunity to let everyone know who she held dearest to her heart and was a good mother, teacher, and example for her daughter Azhaunay. She fought fearlessly and faithfully, never accepting defeat from this disease. Although she knew that her time would soon be up, she refused to give up! She inspired many people to keep praying, hoping, searching and fighting for the cure that she believed would one day come. On July 30, 2018, due to Sickle Cell disease, April finally gained her wings. April leaves to cherish her memories her daughter, Azhaunay Verrelli, her mother Rosalind Carthen (Keith Carthen), her father Terry Hosch, and her two sisters Chantevia Hosch and Rosalind Hosch. She also leaves five nephews Martez, Marques and Mykhael Webb, Jayvion Blake and Riley Williams and three nieces Jalya Blake, Paris Grandberry and Dyzhaunany Webb. April had a host of uncles, aunts, cousins and friends who will miss her dearly.
