Tifini Stratton, 35, of Twin Falls, Idaho and formerly of Gooding, passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 14, 2021 at her home in Twin Falls.
She was born in Twin Falls on February 15, 1986 to Kevin and Christy Stratton. Christy was unsure if she would be blessed with a baby, but then came their miracle, Tifini. Tifini had a heart of gold and loved her family, friends, and her dog Dixie fiercely and unconditionally. She would give her last dollar to anyone in need with no judgement. Tifini enjoyed camping, boating, swimming, kayaking, concerts, and outside activities for the sunshine and a tan. She also liked just cuddling up with a blanket and watching her favorite shows with a lap full of munchies.
Tifini grew up in Gooding. She attended Gooding High School, where she was a member of the Madrigals Choir and the annual staff, and she completed a tech internship. During high school, she worked at Zeppes Pizza and enjoyed her time with the Zeppes crew. After graduation, she moved to Twin Falls, where she worked at Dell. Following her time at Dell, she moved back to Gooding to become a certified nursing assistant. She also worked at C3 and Sunrise Express in Twin Falls. Most of all, Tifini loved her last profession as a damn great bartender at The Log Tavern.
Tifini was always the life of the party! Her laugh alone could make anyone’s bad day turn around. It was contagious and infectious. Oh, my goodness, how we are going to miss her laugh. Making friends was so natural to her, as she always found the very best in people.
She had a tremendous passion for music. A huge supporter of local bands and artists, Tifini was a master of promoting their events. At every show, you would find Tifini dancing and singing along. She was loved and trusted by so many. There are no words that can express just how much she will be missed. She is with her mom and dad now, and we know she is happy. Cheers Tifini, until we meet again.
Tifini was preceded in death by her parents, Kevin and Christy Stratton; Keith Clark, Margo Stratton, Denise Clark, Ben Leavell, David Stratton, and Rodger Stratton, as well as many dear friends.
