In memory of
Toni Ann Shelnutt
Toni Ann Shelnutt was born December 28, 1964 and died February 16, 2021. Toni was a lifelong resident of the Castle Heights Community of Morris Alabama. After a long battle with Huntington's Disease, she took her last breaths in the comfort of her Castle Heights home. Toni was a graduate of Mortimer Jordan High School, class of 1983 where she had the joy of being a cheerleader. After graduation she work as a Worker's Compensation claims adjuster until her disability retirement. Toni was predeceased by her parents, Ronald Tillery and Shirley (Underwood) Tillery. She is survived by her partner and the love of her life, Charles Monte; her boys, Kyle Shelnutt (Clarissa) and Travis Shelnutt; her sister, Kim Page (Terry); and her girls Rhonda Quinn (Kevin), Jessica Schauer (Jonathan), and Nikole Parks (Colt); She was a proud grandmother to eleven: Gabe, Madison, Sophia, Lucy, Cameron, Alyssa, Mackenzie, Trenton, Sawyer, Autumn, and Aulston. She is also survived by her nieces and nephew, her aunts and uncles, and a host of others because with Toni – family was love, not blood. Toni's participation in the Austedo drug trial helped pave the way for FDA approval to treat Huntington's disease symptoms and she enjoyed being an advocate and face for HD – especially when it gave her an excuse to dye her hair a bright color. Special thanks and appreciation to Dr. Sung and the staff at UAB Neurology, an HD Center for Excellence, and Comfort Care Hospice. In Lieu of Flowers, please make donations to the Huntington's Disease Society of America at HDSA.org for continued research and a cure. Visitation will be held at Rideout's Gardendale Chapel on Friday, February 26th from 10am11am with the funeral immediately following. A graveside service will follow at Castle Heights Cemetery. For everyone's safety please wear a mask and practice social distancing.
