PEORIA - Toni Rowena Elliott, age 50, of Peoria passed away Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2010, at her residence.

She was born Nov. 5, 1960, in Peoria to Austin Jr. "Jay" and Jeanetta (Shults) Elliott.

Survivors include her mother and stepfather, Jeanetta (Gene) Cooper of Peoria; father and stepmother, Jay (Beckie) Elliott of Peoria; and two sons, Courtney Johnson of Peoria and Lukas Hoerr of Peoria. She also was a grandmother, "Mamaw," to five grandchildren, and they were her "Babies," Isaiah, Brooklyn, Davonte, Shauntasiana and Kyla; and three sisters, Teri (Ken) Lynch of Dunlap, Kelli (and Dennis Tipsword) of East Peoria and Kandi Nibbelin of West Peoria; one nephew, Corey (Carly) Lynch; three nieces, Nicole Hatch, Brandy (Kerry) Yocum and Heather Nibbelin; one great-niece, Krysta; maternal grandmother, Willie Goodrich; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and a very special uncle, Brian Shults.

She was preceded in death by her grandfathers, Austin Elliott Sr. and Lloyd Shults Sr.; grandmothers, Stella Elliott and Icy Donley; and one infant brother, Mark Todd.

She was a 1978 graduate of Manual High School and received her nursing degree in 1996 from OSF in Peoria.

She also served in the United States Army from 1980 to 1981, stationed in Germany.

She worked as an RN for Methodist Medical Center, OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, Washington Christian Village and Morton Villa Nursing Homes. Her patients loved her, and she had that special gift of working with the elderly.

She was a special fan of Betty Boop, country music and the color red.

Cremation rites have been accorded. A memorial service will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4, 2010, at Remmert Funeral Home in East Peoria. A visitation will be one hour prior to the services Saturday at the funeral home. Burial will be in Fondulac Cemetery in East Peoria at a later date.
