April Renee Hawkins McCreath passed away on February 28, 2024 in Redding after a long and painful battle with heart and liver complications. She was 45 years old.

April was born on August 26, 1978 in Cedarville. The family moved to Yreka when she was two. In 1983, they moved to Livermore, where she attended school. In 1995 she moved to Houston to be with her mother and step father. She moved back to Montague in 2021 to be with her father.
