Trisha Lyle Ten, 49, of Elizabeth, passed away Tuesday, July 6, 2021 after a courageous, hard fought 7 year battle with sarcoma. She was born October 24, 1971 in McKeesport and was the daughter of M. Patricia (Aranyos) Lyle and the late John C. Lyle After graduating from Slippery Rock University, where she was a beloved and fun member of Alpha Xi Delta, she moved to Albuquerque, NM. There, she impacted the lives of students and fellow educators during her decorated career at Albuquerque Public Schools and as the director of special education at Cottonwood Classical Preparatory School. While in Albuquerque, Trisha was a foster mom to her very special son Rob. After moving back to Pittsburgh, she continued her fight at Hillman Cancer Center where she endured her treatments with her trademark grit, stubborn nature and sense of humor.
With her generous spirit, Trisha loved helping and doing for others. She volunteered with many organizations and especially loved all of her ladies at Meals on Wheels. Trisha was an extraordinary mom. She devoted everything she had to being the best mom possible and loved her children fiercely. Because of her, they always felt loved and protected.
