Born April 27, 1972 and entered the Kingdom of Heaven on Wednesday, March 22, 2023 April was loved fiercely by her parents, Robert and Ellen Kirkbride, her only sister, Rochelle Boyle and her nephews, Zachery and Jeremy Cordova. 

   She will remain the brightest light in their lives as she lives now in their hearts. Every once in a while, a very special person comes into our lives and without us knowing, teaches us more about life than we could ever imagine. April was born with Down’s Syndrome, survived open heart surgery, leukemia and battled Alzheimer’s and yet never wavered in her faith. April was loved by all who came to know her; she couldn't speak or communicate in the traditional sense, but she was funny, kind and gentle. Her favorite hobbies were Special Needs Bowling and Cheerleading. April's favorite color was pink, we are asking for those who are attending her memorial to please wear any shade of pink in memory of her. 

April will always be our Princess.

   P. L. Fry and Son is honored to be serving the Kirkbride family. A Celebration of Life will be Thursday, April 27, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. held at LifeSong Church, 3034 Michigan Ave., Stockton, CA. For direct condolences to the family visit April’s tribute page at
