September 24, 1953 – September 5, 2020
April Cooke, 66, of Hot Springs went to the Magic Kingdom in the sky August 5, 2020.
A trained actor and dancer, April took flight as “Tinkerbell” at Disney World - beginning with Tink’s maiden flight at Disney World in 1985. April worked and travelled the world as part of the Disney cast. As Tinkerbell, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, and many more characters over her long Disney career, April kept the Magic alive for many people.
April kept the magic alive at home too. Whether cooking, gardening, or entertaining, she was always busy making people happy. April will be missed for the magic of her smile, wit, wisdom, and her most powerful magic of all - her love.
She hopes everyone, especially her sons David Fisher, Dustin Fisher, Jeremiah Cooke, and Robert Cooke; grandchildren Star Cooke, Genevieve Fisher, and Sebastienne Fisher; and siblings Linda Milner, William Hambly and Robert Hambly remember that in order to fly- one must think happy thoughts.
