She was born at home in Bountiful, Utah on April 13, 1983. She was always a fun loving, precocious child. She was a wonderful combination of mischievousness, spontaneity, and an unbridled love of life.
She graduated from Canyon Heights. She was always an excellent student and well-liked by her teachers and the other students. As an adult, she graduated from cosmetology school as a beautician. Also, she was a master esthetician.
Her greatest dream was to be a mother and homemaker. Along with being incredibly bright, she was amazingly creative in-home crafts and organization. She was gifted in so many ways coming up with an endless parade of home crafts and ways to beautify her home and care for her daughters. As well, she had a great intellect with a tremendous capacity to research and understanding the difficult.
She was the mother of two beautiful daughters, Tyannah Janae Bailey, 20 and Tayley Chloe Kelson, 10. Everyone who saw Tristyn was struck by her beauty. She truly was one of the great beauties of our time. However even more beautiful was her love for the Lord.
In addition to leaving behind her two daughters, she leaves her parents Maikel and Michelle Bailey, five sisters and a brother, their spouses and 29 nephews and nieces.
As you may imagine, her passing was unexpected and a tragedy for all of those left behind. This event is something none of her family and friends could have ever imagined. It’s a nightmare, we wish we could all wake up from. Yet, as the reality of what took place continues to take hold. I, her brother, family, and friends, ask for your support in raising funds to help pay for funeral expenses, along with providing her daughter (Tayley), with some funds to help ease some of the financial responsibilities of raising of a young girl. Any help you can provide would be a blessing to her and her family.
I, Drayton Bailey (Brother), will be in charge of disbursing any funds raised. All funds will go towards any cost associated with the funeral and memorial, along with providing some type of trust or bank account for the support of raising Tristyn's Daughter Tayley.
Lastly, a Sunday evening viewing will be held April 1, 2018, for the public from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Lindquist Mortuary located at 727 N 400 E Bountiful, Utah. Another viewing for the public will be Monday from 9:45 AM to 10:45 AM at the same location. The Funeral services will begin immediately after beginning at 11:00 AM at Lindquist Mortuary. We express our deep gratitude to our dear friends and neighbors who have helped so much during these dark hours.
