Tia "Taj" Lyve nee Pilaroscia, was found deceased at the age of 38 in their Ames, Iowa home on November 4, 2020.

Taj was born on February 23, 1982, in Houston, Texas, as the only child to Tina Reimers. Taj graduated from Spring Woods High School in 2000, the first in their family to graduate from high school. Taj continued family firsts by graduating from the University of Houston-Downtown with a Bachelor's of Science in Applied Mathematics and another Bachelor's of Science in Applied Statistics in 2011. Taj attended a Post Baccalaureate program at Smith College in 2012. Taj was a Master's student at Iowa State University in the Math Education program and was scheduled to graduate in Spring 2021.

Taj worked as a dog groomer, school bus driver, support staff for the disabled, and as a math tutor. Taj enjoyed mathematics, scientific research, science fiction, animals, puzzles, volunteering, and being active in the LGBT and disability communities. Taj attended the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Ames.

Taj is survived by their only son, Thomas Lyve; grandmother Eve Yokeley of Texas City, Texas; cousins Madison and Skylar Zwernemann of The Woodlands, Texas; and many dear friends and esteemed colleagues. Taj was preceded in death by their uncle Jeff Zwernemann of Galveston, Texas; and their mother Tina Reimers of Texas City, Texas. Taj will be remembered as gentle, smart, and kind.

Taj was cremated. A memorial service will be held online.

Thank you to Iowa State University, Vocational Rehabilitation Services, OptimaeLifeServices, Ames Monument and Cremation Center, and the Story County Burial Assistance Fund.

Donations towards the care of Taj's son Thomas Lyve can be made to an account in his name at Greater Iowa Credit Union.
