On May 25th, 2012 at 8:07 PM Bobbi and Kyle Quinton welcomed their beautiful baby girl into the world at Saint Luke's hospital in downtown Boise. Beginning the day she was born she could put a smile on your face with her bright personality, fiery red hair and all. Taryn was a lover and often thought of others before herself. She could be found snuggling up with her "Twinkle Twinkle" blanket, that her mom made for her, while watching Doc McStuffins, or running amuck with her cousins in the backyard, clearly up to some shenanigans. You wouldn't see one without seeing the others.
Taryn had a desire for learning and excelled at school. She Attended Hawthorne Elementary for Pre-K, kindergarten and first grade before transferring to Discovery Elementary and then Shadow Butte Elementary.
Taryn had a love for unicorns and coloring. She would often make or color a picture for someone and it would put the greatest smile on her face and give her joy in her heart. She also enjoyed going on nature walks and finding heart shaped rocks with her grandma. Taryn adored her family and friends and there is no other quite like her. Her bright light and bubbly personality will be forever missed by her untimely death.
Taryn's body was found on April 15th, 2021 after being reported missing on April 12th, 2021.
Taryn had resided in Emmett, Idaho for a brief period but while she was there the community was nothing short of amazing to her with the support they gave with looking for her and the candle light vigil that was held in her honor. We would also like to thank the Potter Funeral Chapel for all they have done and being so patient with us throughout this process.
Taryn was survived by her parents, Bobbi and Kyle Quinton; siblings, Taylor (at the time), Tristan, Tatum and Kyler; aunts, Jennifer Sexton, Heather Milligan, Kayla Quinton, and Mandi Adams; uncles, Adam Quinton and Owen Milligan; grandparents, Daryle and Tami Sexton, Rosa and Eric Nielsen, Keith Quinton; great grandparents, Bob and Patsy Gardner, Susie Sexton; cousins, Shawn, Jason, Hope, Emilee, Braiden, Audrey, Alyssa, Jasper, and many other family members. She is preceded in death by her cousins, James Milligan and Jade Schach; uncle, Kyle Sexton; great grandparents, Bonnie and Robert Morton and Jerry Sexton.
Although her life was cut short, she made a profound impact on those who knew and loved her. Her spirit will continue to live on as we fight for justice and become her voice. She will always be remembered as the kindhearted beautiful soul she was.
Services for Taryn will be jointly held with her sister, Taylor, who passed away in an unrelated incident July 22, 2021. This combined service will be held at 1:00 PM on Saturday, April 30, 2022 at the Engage Boise Church (270 E. Pennsylvania) in Boise. Burial will follow at the Dry Creek Cemetery in Boise. Services are being jointly cared for by the Potter Funeral Chapel of Emmett and Rosenau Funeral Home of Twin Falls.
