April S. Justus, 42, of Sheboygan, passed away on Tuesday, October 25, 2022, after struggling with dialysis for over 15 years, and in 2019 losing part of her left leg and right foot. April had an amazing spirit and was very determined not to let her health and disability define who she was.
April had the gift of gab, she made many friends while working at Piggly Wiggly and Walmart on the northside, as a cashier she loved to visit with the customers and make them smile. April had a Heart of Gold, she always put her family and friends before herself. She made sure they were taken care of and knew how much she loved them. Her nieces and nephews were her pride and joy, she enjoyed crocheting blankets for them, and playing with them. She even became a diehard Pokémon Go player because of them. April was an animal lover; her favorite animal was a wolf. She also loved her faithful and furry companion Chewy. Reading was also a favorite past time of hers, her collection of paperback books was quite impressive. April had a strong faith and was a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church.
