April L. Hansen

October 23, 1992 - May 12, 2021 Age 28 "Not One to Sit Still"

April L. Hansen, age 28, passed away Wednesday, May 12, 2021 following a lifelong battle with cystic fibrosis.

April graduated from Avon Grove High School in 2011. In 2012, she founded her own business, The Trendy Little Geek, which was born from her passion of quilting and love of quality fabrics.

April continued her education at Meredith College, graduating in 2016 after a double lung transplant. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design.

Following college graduation, April moved to Brooklyn where she spent her time exploring the city and absorbing the rich culture of New York. She was an avid foodie with an artist’s soul and loved every minute of living in Brooklyn.

While continuing to run her own business, April worked full time at Trader Joe’s in the SoHo section of Manhattan.

April was a go-getter with an indomitable determination to succeed at any endeavor. She was not one to sit still.

As a transplant recipient, April understood the importance of organ donation firsthand. In her death, she donated her organs in the hope of bettering the lives of others. Her desire was that her donation could assist in the repair of a burn victim’s damaged skin or allow a visually impaired person to regain their sight.

April is survived by her mother, Nina Hansen; her father, Eric Hansen; as well as her aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. April was preceded in death by her fiancé, Cris Dopher.

  1. Nina and Eric,
    We are so sorry for April’s passing. We remember her at OPC, always active and following her dreams – not letting her illness slow her down – as it sounds she continued to do in her 28 years. She had many experiences in her life and her memories will be your strength.

    Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers!

  3. My heart is completely broken to learn of April’s sudden passing. She was my daughter’s best friend, and we all considered her family. I will never forget her creativity, her passion for life, and her infectious laughter. Sending love and strength to her family and friends.
