April Dawn Ferguson LeFevre, 38, passed away on Thursday, Feb. 25, 2016, at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix from cancer. A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 5, with visitation one hour prior, at the Holbrook Stake Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, located at 1127 Helen Ave. Interment will follow at the Eagar Cemetery at a future time.
She was born Dec. 1, 1977, at Flagstaff.
April graduated from Holbrook High School, received her associate’s degree from Northland Pioneer College, and continued her education at Northern Arizona University with emphasis on Library Science and Theatre.
She served as a missionary for the LDS church in the California Arcadia Mission, Spanish speaking.
April married Thomas Aaron LeFevre in the Snowflake Arizona LDS Temple on June 13, 2003. They have one daughter, Kaitlyn Elizabeth LeFevre, born July 18, 2006, in Show Low.
April spent many years working at the Holbrook Public Library. After a short term with Navajo County Probation, she hired on with the Holbrook Public Schools as Holbrook Junior High School and Hulet Elementary School librarian. She was blessed to work most of her life in a career which brought her great joy. She loved books and she loved working with youth. She lived by the motto that those who did not like to read just had not found the right book yet, and she inspired reading enjoyment in many by finding books that interested them. She was loved by staff and students at both schools.
Survivors include her husband, Thomas LeFevre, and daughter Kaitlyn LeFevre; her grandparents, Frank and Jeanne Turley, Myrleen Ferguson and the late Edward Ferguson; her parents, Michael and Heather Ferguson; her siblings, Eldon (Amy) Ferguson, Brit (Amber) Ferguson and Nicole (Frank) Sweet; her parents-in-law, Mark and Susan LeFevre; her siblings-in-law, Mysilvia LeFevre, Rebecca LeFevre, Brad (Amanda) LeFevre, Amy (Blaine) Bushman, Emily (Sean) Whitehorn, Rachel LeFevre and Julie LeFevre; her nephews, Frank, Garn, Kohl and Jakob Sweet, Aiden LeFevre and Logan Bushman; and her nieces, Sophia Sweet and Zoe LeFevre.
April was dearly loved by her family and friends. She will be greatly missed.
