April Dawn Murphy Hammock, 41, of Collinsville, Va. passed away Wednesday, October 17, 2018. She was born in Martinsville, Va. to David Murphy and Charlene Murphy Adkins. She was a member of The Horsepasture Christian Church. She loved her boys, spending time with them and loved the beach. She worked at and loved her job and her co-workers at King’s Mountain Animal Clinic.
April loved people, especially babies. She was feeding and holding babies at the babysitters when she was a baby herself. She had a great temperament. Her boys were her first and foremost, giving her all, even in her sickest days. Her absence leaves a hole in our hearts, but to be absent from the body, is to be in the presence of God.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Charlie, and Midget Murphy.
In addition to her parents, April is survived by her children, Jaden Timothy Hammock, Rylan David Hammock, and Grant Hayden Hammock; sisters, Angela Hiatt and Sarah Adkins; step-mother, Judy Murphy; step-father, Steve Adkins; grandparents, Emmett Gribbin Murphy and Jessie Leigh Murphy; very special aunt Audrey Hammock; and loving friend Krystal Hammock.
The funeral will be at 3 p.m. Sunday, October 21, 2018, at Horsepasture Christian Church. Visitation will be from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Burial will follow at the Church cemetery.
Wright Funeral Service & Crematory is serving the family.
