After high school Latonia attended Penn Valley, Brown Mackie College, and Concord Institute in Kansas City, MO to obtain her nursing certification.
In LaTonia teen years, and into her adult years she danced and taught at Carruthers Dance Studio in Kansas City, MO. In recent years Latonia reignited her love of dance as a member of St. Monica praise dance team. The joy on her face while dancing was unexplainable.
Many know Latonia as *Toni*. Toni was a very outgoing, loving individual, and the life of any party, although her favorite parties were *dance parties* with her grandchildren. To know her was to love her.
After a long fight with cancer, Latonia lost her fight but gained her peace on the early morning hours of April 23.
She is survived by her parents, her 3 brothers Gregory Murray (KCMO), Lafyette *PeeWee* Palmer and Marvin Palmer (Seattle). Although she had no biological sisters Delshone McDonald (Atlanta) and Imelba Lee (KCMO) definitely held the title of great aunt, cousin and sister. She is also survived by her children Tyran Sutherlin (Raytown) and Aaron Sutherlin Jr.,(KCMO) 4 grandchildren; Jaliyah, Johnnie III, Xavier, and Jaxson and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and several close friends.
