Allen Shuttlesworth

Allen E. (Mickey) Shuttlesworth, 82, died peacefully at home Wednesday (June 19, 2013).

He was born in Worthington to the late John and Josephine (Michael) Shuttlesworth.

Allen graduated from Zion Bible Institute, E. Providence, R.I., in 1952 and was married shortly after to Carlene (Crawford) Shuttlesworth, whom he had met while there. Together, they began a journey in ministry, which included pasturing several churches and traveling evangelistically throughout the United States and overseas.

He was a preacher’s preacher, with an extremely generous heart. Many men and women around the world were called and raised up under his ministry.

He was predeceased by his parents, John and Josephine Shuttlesworth; brothers, Milford and Cleo Shuttlesworth; and sisters, Edith Anderson and Alice Skelley.

He is survived by his wife, Carlene of 61 years; sons, Ted and wife Bonnie, Tim and wife Gwen, Tiff and wife Judy and Terry and wife Colleen; grandchildren, Ted Jr., Megan S. Wiley, Matthew, Michaela and Jonathan Shuttlesworth, Jessica S. Gesualdi, Chelsea, Brooke, Preston and Grayson Shuttlesworth; great-grandchildren, Madelyn, Kaylen, Joel and Camila; also surviving, several nieces and nephews.

The family thanks everyone who was involved in the care of Allen, especially the kindness and help of Amedisys-Hospice.

Friends may call at the Calvary Temple Assembly of God Church on Swisher Hill on Sunday from 3-8 p.m. where funeral services will be held on Monday at 11 a.m. with the sons of Mr. Shuttlesworth officiating. Interment will be at the Shinnston Masonic Cemetery. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Hutson Funeral Home in Farmington. Online condolences may be accessed at

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
