Taryn D’Ann Jensen, age 65, a resident of Woodinville for the last 30 years, passed away on Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2021 on a blustery fall day that she would have loved. Taryn was born on Sept. 4, 1956 in Seattle. She was a graduate of Meadowdale High School class of 1974 and was a proud hair stylist and business owner of Salon Zuberenz in Lynnwood for around 35 years.
She loved spoiling her three boys, all the holidays, riding bicycles and rollerblades on the Burke-Gilman trail, attending the annual Tisdel Family Reunion that she cofounded over 40 years ago, family cabin trips to Ocean Shores and Palm Springs, traveling through Europe, backseat Harley rides with her husband, girlfriend dates at Molbaks, working in her Salon surrounded by her fellow employees, praising the Lord throughout the week and attending church on Sundays. She was best friends with Jesus Christ and an active member of North Creek Presbyterian Church in Mill Creek, WA. She loved her pets throughout life including cats Mischief and Sydney, goat Wags, horse Scotch, and dogs Buffalo, Chips, Elizabeth, Cooper and Palin.
She empowered many women as a church youth group leader and business owner employing around 50 hairdressers throughout the time of ownership. She was loved by so many and impacted many lives by loving her family, empowering employees, conversating with clients, and leading church mission trips, even stretching her arms into Haiti monetarily sponsoring and acting as a pen pal for a child for almost eight years. She was described by many as sweet and kind.
Taryn is preceded in death by her parents Don and Joyce Tisdel, and two brothers Sam and Mike Tisdel. She is survived by her childhood sweetheart and husband of 45 years, Jeff Jensen; 3 sons Jason (wife, Heidi), Landon and Brady (wife, Kate) Jensen; 3 grandchildren Adalyn, Emma, and Jake Jensen and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Funeral Services will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 9, at North Creek Presbyterian Church in Mill Creek, WA with pastor Kurt Helmcke officiating. Following that will be a celebration of life at 1 p.m. at the Edmonds Waterfront Center in Edmonds, WA.
