Blessed are the weird people: poets, misfits, writers, mystics, painters, and troubadours. For they teach us to see the world through different eyes. Our beloved Tay's blue green eyes were full of vivid youthful charm, compassion and stars. She was born to Julia Lestenkof, October 16, 1983 in Anchorage Alaska. Tay Tay was a free spirited vibrant soul who loved being surrounded by her family and friends. She will always be her mom's Peanut! Nothing surpassed the love she had for her mother. Tay brought smiles to everyone and gave the best hugs ever. She leaves behind a multitude of loving family and friends who will cherish eternally the luminous memory of her. She was a social butterfly who touched the lives of those around her. No one has traveled life's spectrum as fully and emphatically as Tay; or had magnetically attracted so many people of diversity. Tay expressed her passion for life through writing poetry, playing guitar, singing songs, and dancing. She also enjoyed attending music festivals, bonfires, camping, shooting pool, cooking for everyone and making cupcakes. Life is like a shooting star it don't matter who you are; if you only run for cover, it's just a waste of time! We are lost 'til we are found, this phoenix rises up from the ground and all these wars are over.

Our love for her is forever alive in our hearts.

Tay is survived by her mother, Julia Lestenkof ; sister, Ariel Lestenkof-Andrew, brother, Zachary Lestenkof-Andrew, niece, Tara T Tiffert, Ommie Laurie Rubino, and her partner, Shayanne Edson with endearing aunts, uncles and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her grandmother, "Kooka" Valentina and grandfather, "Papa" Theodore Lestenkof.
