Although the obituary says she will be interred at the Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, she is not interred there at this time.


Published in The Sierra Vista Herald (Jan. 23, 2015):

Ernestine J. (Abril) Skinfill, 88, of Lake Havasu City, Ariz., went to be with the Lord on Jan. 10, 2015, surrounded by her loving family.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Claude Skinfill; mother, Annie Abril; sister, Magda Wade; and brother, Ronnie Abril.

She is survived by her son, Thomas and his wife Monica, and their two sons, Keanyn and Kylan, whom Ernestine cherished. She is also survived by eight siblings, Isabelle (Diz) Schartl, Clara Abril, Frances Gonzales, Mary Ellen Roberson, and Philip, Freddy, Joe, and Danny Abril.

For many years Ernestine was a resident of Lake Havasu City, where she and her husband lived after his retirement.

Ernestine was born and raised in Bisbee, Ariz., and lived in Florida, Colorado, and New Mexico. She and Claude lived in California before moving to Lake Havasu, where they built their dream home, surrounded by the Mohave Mountains that she treasured.

She will be laid to rest with Claude at a ceremony at Fort Rosecrans in San Diego, Calif.
