In Memory of April L. Severude


September 14, 1958 - May 15, 2022

April Severude, 63, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on May 15, 2022.

She lived everyday with purpose, gratefulness, love and caring for others. Without fail, April always put others ahead of herself. Her selflessness shone through in her every action, her kind words and her beautiful heart. She was a warrior in her zest to live life in its fullest, even despite her cancer diagnosis 4 years ago. She faced this challenge head-on with courage, strength and a positive attitude. She left this world a better place.

She was born in Waukesha on September 14, 1958 to Randy and Florence Seidens. She graduated as a certified Medical Laboratory Technician, a job that she enjoyed for many years. She worked at multiple labs over the years, including Hudson, Rice Lake, Chetek and many of the regional clinics in Northwest Wisconsin bringing her strong work ethic, compassion for others and knack for organization everywhere she went. She married the love of her life, Doug Severude, on September 12, 1981 at Mount Calvary Lutheran Church. Together they built a home in Hudson, WI where they raised their family. Later in life they built a new home in Chetek, WI. This provided plenty of space for her to plant flower gardens grow blueberries and take 4-wheeler rides through the woods. She enjoyed gardening and bird watching. Time spent in nature strengthened her faith and helped her feel closer to God. April was a devoted grandma, mom and wife. She cherished her grandkids and loved spending time with family. Big or small moments always brought joy and connection. From jumping in fall leaf piles with the kids, to making crafts and carrying on traditions like family campouts and annual gingerbread house making. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends and all who knew her.

She is survived by her husband: Doug, children: Laura (Zach) Howard of Zumbrota, MN and Eric (Manda) Severude of Inver Grove Heights, MN, grandchildren: Carley, Aria and Hailey Howard, Harper and Brooke Severude, mother: Florence Seidens of Weston, WI, brother: Doug Seidens of Ringle, WI as well as many other relatives and friends.

She is preceded in death by her father, Randy Seidens and a brother Keith Seidens.
