Decatur community remembers the life of Minnie Shackelford

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. –  A Decatur community has come together to lift each other up and remember the life of 44-year-old Minnie Shackelford.

She was found dead inside her home this past week. Currently police are investigating her death as a homicide.

On Sunday, her friends and family came together to host a vigil. Friends and family says she was the kind of person that would give you a helping hand in times of trouble, or be there when you need someone the most.

She leaves behind 3 children and several grandchildren. She is from Mississippi and that's where her funeral will be held. Family and Friends have launched a GoFundMe account to help with funeral expenses.
