April L. Blay, 61, of Lowber (formerly of North Huntington), passed away unexpectedly Friday, October 4, 2019. She was born March 12, 1958 in Indianapolis, Indiana, the daughter of the late Justin S. "Jack" and Diana (Hughes) Blay. Prior to her retirement, April was employed by the Arc of Westmoreland. She was a member of the Sutersville Primitive Methodist Church. She enjoyed attending the Arc dances, playing bingo, and spending time with her family and friends. She enjoyed swimming (especially her swimming lessons with Savannah Brown), going to the beach, shopping at the Dollar Store for her stuffed animals and glow sticks, and getting pedicures, manicures and getting her hair done. She especially enjoyed the holidays and brought so much joy into our lives with her childlike innocence and exuberance. April is survived by her extended family, Laura Rosiek and the late Victor Rosiek Jr., with whom she resided, "Gibble" Dunbar, Bonnie Egeland, Kim Dunbar, and Colleen, Gene and Alyssa Zimmerman, in addition to numerous cousins. She is survived by her companion, Kevin Conaway, and her best friends, Nikki Steban, Donna and Mark Olexick, Fran Polka, Lauren Bergman and Heather Sutton. April was our precious angel, and her memory will live on in our hearts forever.
