In Loving Memory of April Gale Halliday

Dr. April Gale Halliday, born in Vancouver, British Columbia, and resident of Edmonton, Alberta, passed away on October 23, 2023, at the age of 46. She was predeceased by her father, John Robert Halliday, and her cherished bouvier, Lily.

April is survived by her loving mother Dawn Halliday, sister Amber Halliday, half brother Glen, her adored dogs Frankie and Georgie, and dear friend Leah Brassington. Although not bound by blood, she considered Katie Wohlgemuth to be her daughter. Katie, husband Darryl, and their children Robbie and Scarlet held a special place in her heart. She will be deeply missed by her extended family, including her Uncle Grant, Aunt Diane, and cousins Jill, Jodie, Brooks, Blake, and Leslie.

As a highly regarded physician, April dedicated herself to her patients, going above and beyond to provide care and compassion. April was an avid traveler, always looking forward to her next adventure, and found joy in the company of her dogs as well as her close circle of people who filled her life with love and laughter. Smart, driven, and talented, she brought forth genuine warmth and kindness to all who knew her. Her generosity and love knew no bounds.

A memorial service in honour of April will be held at the Art Gallery of Alberta on November 10, 2023, at 2:00pm, located at 2 Sir Winston Churchill Sq. Edmonton, Alberta.

This service welcomes all family, friends, and those that had the privilege to know her.

    When I referred a patient to her , I always told the patient I was sending them to THE BEST caring , amazing doctor ever , and that if I ever needed to see anyone , I would choose April .

  10. I did not know April personally, but as a physicianI had many occasion to see her radiology reports which I appreciated. I had numerous patients who benefited from her interventional care for joint injections etc. Some of my patients commented specifically on how good April was and would specifically request to have her do their injections.

  15. This still doesn’t feel real. It is hard to accept that she’s actually gone. My heart breaks, not just for her family, her work family and her beautiful fur babies – but also for April. She spent her life dedicated to making people’s lives better – she was such a bright light in this world, and she deserved soo much better than this. Wherever April was, warmth, wit, humour and love were never far away. Farewell to a beautiful person who left this world infinitely better. I will miss you tremendously.

  17. I will always remember April and feel fortunate to have known her. Like so many others who were drawn to April by her charm, kindness and warmth, I am grieved by her passing. We worked together for several years at the CCI. Without exception, I was consistently pleased to see April’s initials on our mammo schedule. A day working along side April was a pleasure. We also lived in close proximity and it was a joy to run into her & Lily at the dog park.
    My heartfelt sympathy to April’s family.

  19. On behalf of myself Richard Ambler & my wife Pat, we offer our sincere condolences to Dr April’s family & colleagues. Your loved one touched so many lives and will always be remembered. Dr April was exceptional Doctor whose caring nature, warmth, kindness, compassionate and dedication were beyond measure. Dr April made such an impact on my life. I suffered with so much pain throughout my body and she was able to relieve my excruciating pain. I was so grateful for her help always. I felt I had to give her Thank you cards for her card room. I wanted to let her know how much she helped me. In fact I felt so blessed when she had asked me to get her another card like the one I had given her previously. Dr April wanted me to write the same message in it so she could take that one home. Dr April will be missed for all who knew her and to all the patients she helped including myself.

  20. We were shocked and saddened to hear of April’s passing. She was a very bright, talented woman who cared deeply for the people around her. She will be greatly missed but not forgotten.

  22. To the Glenwood family,
    I am saddened to hear this news. My condolences to all . I will miss her contagious smile and our talks that we had every time she would help me with my pain management.
    May she RIP.
    God bless the Glenwood family

  23. Condolences from my husband and myself on April’s passing.

    I went to Glenwood back in 2014 for an ultrasound & one of the staff mentioned how skilled April was with cortisone injections. As I was getting them every 3 months I started going to her. She amazed me with her gentleness and speed. When my husband had knee and hip joint issues he too appreciated her skill. And when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer April was so reassuring when I’d ask her questions whilst getting my injections.

    She will be sorely missed. RIP

  24. I was shocked and saddened to see that Dr. April Halliday had passed. As someone who has had multiple injections and procedures, and as a retired nurse, I know from experience that she was so skilled and knowledgeable. I always told her she had golden hands, I never felt a thing. I know I could relax because I was in excellent hands, always. I know I will miss her. My condolences to her family and friends, she was a great lady!

  25. Still in shock: an old friend, a trusted caregiver, a remarkable person who exemplified all we should like to be and an inspiration to so many because of that. she gave her best and never looked for a reward, her reward was knowing she was real and sincere. so gave herself for others! THANK YOU APRIL, my we honor you by paying your values dedication and friendship forward! don

  26. Such sad news, gone to soon. My heart goes out to Dawn and Amber and all family and close friends. Both the girls grew up across the street from my parents Pat and Pete Tomlin. I have know the girls for a long time. Both Amber and April also went to Rick Hansen in Abbotsford. April’s locker was just outside of my cafeteria office. April was always a kind and a gentle person. Last time we saw her was at her dad’s internment. Life is not always fair, there is another star in the sky for April.

  27. Ive struggled to write this to say goodbye for now April. You are the kindest person Ive known. You helped to manage my pain until i could have multiple surgeries and made my life easier. Our conversations about our fur babies was full of love for them but your heart was full of love & caring for every living thing. Thank you for your kindness, help and some good laughs. My condolences to your family which you spoke of so lovingly – I know they will miss you terribly.

  28. My most sincere condolences to April’s family, dear friends and beloved bouviers. I am so shocked and saddened to hear of her passing. She was the warmest, kindest soul, who went above and beyond to make people feel special. I can only imagine how much she will be missed.

  29. My very deepest Sympathy to Doctor April Hallidays family. I was so shocked when I heard she had passed away. Dr April was an amazing person. She gave me many cortizone shots and if you went in to see her feeling down with the pain you were in, she would always get the exact spot to put the injection and always made me laugh. Such a wonderful, talented, kind hearted person. She will be greatly missed. Heaven gained an amazing Angel. She will be greatly missed by her fur baby, mother, sister and all the rest of her family and friends. Shine brightly Dr April. I will miss you too.

  30. I am in absolute shock Dr.April Halliday was referred to me by my family physician 2 years ago and I was very happy with her every visit as April would make a painful visit turn into a painless leave after the appointment she always welcomed me with a warm heart and an infectious smile and we’d make small conversations a lasting and memorable I will miss you April God took you home way too soon heaven just got a beautiful angel and you are a shining star among the galaxy peace be with you in the arms of Jesus but here on earth I will never forget the kindness you bestowed upon me thank you for always complimenting my clothing attire I always told you that you were welcome to go through my closet then we would laugh your absence at the Glenwood Radiology will be dearly missed you were not only my Dr. But you were family friend in every aspect Sleep a restful Sleep April I will miss you to all April’s family and friends I send my heartfelt condolences RIP

  31. I only found out today that you had left us. My heart breaks to know that I will never see that smile or hear the kindness in your voice again. I know that you will be missed by everyone who’s life you touched The world lost an incredible Doctor and an amazing person! Rest in Peace April….and know that you left the world a better place for having lived!
