An anxiously awaiting family welcomed their princess, Kwintse Marley, to her earthly journey on September 21, 1994. She completed that part of her journey April 2, 2014 near her home in Cub River, Idaho. Kwintse was a happy baby. She mastered the art of “butt scooting” and had blue eyes that you could dive into. Early in Kwintse’s childhood she loved to be outside. She could often be found shirtless in her brother’s underwear playing in the dirt with her dog Annie. Kwintse attended elementary, middle, and high school in Preston. She loved to learn but the school setting was confining to her. Kwintse looked to gain wisdom in ways other people may not have considered.
That scrappy little tomboy quickly transformed into a styled, poised, clean-freak. For Kwintse things had to be exact. She was meticulous about her book bag, her room, and having things the way she loved them. Kwintse enriched her journey with sports. She loved to play basketball and softball. Aside from playing sports, she closely followed ESPN to keep up on her Miami Heat.
A true bright spot in Kwintse’s life was being an Aunt to her Stella Bear. She spent countless hours taking such good care of her and now gets to be the first to hold her nephew Silas. Kwintse also loved to care for her dog Missy. If Kwintse came into a room Missy was sure to follow. Kwintse was always ready to have fun. With that attitude she attracted many friends and loved to spend time with them. Some of her fondest times were going to movies with her dad, watching her siblings build their lives and being a part of it anyway she could, exploring life’s philosophies with her mom, and keeping her status on social media up to date.
Towards the end of her earthly journey Kwintse met the love of her life Kolton Bird. She loved to spend time with Kolton and appreciated feeling his love.
Kwinner is survived by her dad Kelton A. Marley, her mom Karen Hull Talbot, her step-dad Jeffery D. Talbot Siblings: Keltsey Marley & Kyle Webb, Kodie & Austin Alder, Karsen & Erica Marley, Chase Talbot & Melissa Salcedo, Casem Talbot, Niece: Stella Monroe Marley, Grandma: Loma Marley, Grandpa: Merrill & Darla Marley, Great Grandma: Merna Marley, Fiancé Kolton T. Bird, Missy, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Kwintse was welcomed to her heavenly home by her brother Konner Lorenzo Marley, her grandparents Clair and Blanche Hull, Cousins Nicolas James Hull and Jerric Craig Gittins, Uncle Kent Hull, Great Grandparents Dail and Violet Albiston and Great Grandpa Austin Marley.
A celebration of her life will be held Wednesday April 9, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at the Cub River Church House, 5307 E. Cub River Road with Bishop Troy Foster Conducting. A viewing will be held on Tuesday evening from 6-8 p.m. at Webb Funeral Home in Preston 1005 South 800 East as well as Wednesday from 9:30-10:30 at the Mapleton Church.
