Tyler A. Reid, 21, of Robins, Iowa, passed away on Monday, November 27, 2023.

Words cannot fully capture the essence of Tyler Reid. 

Tyler was born on Dec. 8th, 2001, in Livingston, NJ, the daughter of Dr. Vincent and Darline (Davermann) Reid.  She stubbornly came into this world and made every moment of her existence on this earth memorable. From her exuberant entrance, she was nothing less than captivating—her smile, her energy, her intelligence and her creativity. 

At the age of 10, Tyler, along with her family relocated to Robins, IA and she continued to spread her enchanting energy. Tyler attended Bowman Woods Elementary, Oakridge Middle School and Xavier High school. She left her mark at each location. Tyler graduated Xavier High School in 2020 and began her secondary education at Oberlin College & Conservatory. At Oberlin, Tyler was able to expand her love of the sciences and arts, majoring in neuroscience with a minor in music. 

Tyler loved animals passionately, especially Bentley, the family dog which she really believed and professed was hers and only hers. She was the consummate performer and yes, she was a true drama queen!!! Tyler will always be remembered for her effervescent personality, kind heart and passion for life. Tyler, although physically gone, will never, ever be forgotten. Her legacy will forever live on.

Survivors include her parents, Darline and Dr. Vincent Reid; brother, Kyle Reid; Georgette Davermann (maternal  grandmother), Alma Cunningham (paternal grandmother), Vincent G. Reid (paternal grandfather),  Aunts Myrlande (Davermann) Wilson, Sandra Davermann, Uncle, Rohan Clarke (paternal) And several great aunts and uncles, cousins, great cousins and many many friends.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Max, paternal great grandmother, Gloria, and maternal great uncle, Rosemard who have now greeted Tyler in her next life with a celebration including singing, her awesome playlists and dancing- choreographed by Tyler (of course!!!)!
