Toni was born on May 4th, 1972 to Ted & Sharon Snodgrass in Bossier City and went to be with her Lord & Savior on Friday April 13th, 2018. She was a lifelong resident of the area and a longtime employee of Willis Knighton Health Systems, serving 17 years. Her greatest joy in life was being a mother.

She married the love of her life, Michael, November 23rd, 1996. They then made a life in Haynesville, LA where they welcomed their first born, Micah. In 2003, they moved back to Bossier City and welcomed their second born, Marlee.

To know Toni was to love Toni. Her smile & her laugh were contagious. She had a love for music that she shared with Michael and their closest friends. They enjoyed listening to live bands and watching the LSU tigers. Her love for her family and friends was deep and everyone knew it. Though we are devastated because her time on earth was cut short, her legacy will live on through her children.

Dear Ted, Sharon, and Family:

I was so sorry to hear of Toni's passing. Even though we have not been in touch for years, my heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and your family. I can't imagine the grief you and your family are experiencing right now. I enjoyed looking at all the pictures of Toni and her family. I just know she must have been a very special lady. You know I always have to look at Uncle Milfort and Aunt Kate's house when I go to El Dorado and then I remember our family gatherings that were held there. We always had such a good time. Just know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers..

Blessings,
Sandra Saulsbury Harcourt
