Trish Norquist-Jones, age 64 of Exline, Iowa, passed away Friday, November 06, 2015 at her home.

Trish was born on May 4, 1951 in Leon, Iowa, the middle child of J.B. Kelley and Valdene Clark. A sister of Mike and Dan, this beautiful red haired girl would begin her amazing journey of life! Raised in Centerville, Trish attended the Centerville School District, graduating from Centerville High School in 1969 (the height of the Vietnam War, and the Hippie Movement). She later attended Indian Hills Community College in Centerville, earning her associate's degree.

Growing up and loving life in this little corner of the world during this point in history, (Trish did attend Woodstock) she still knew there was so much more of this world to be seen and places on this Earth she needed to leave her footprints upon.

Trish soon joined the Department of Defense. It was here, working with the Army, she was able to travel the globe!

She is survived by her husband, Rich Jones of Exline, Iowa; two siblings, Mike (Patti) Kelley of Centerville, and Dan (Carol) Kelley of Kirksville, Missouri; along with several nieces and nephews; and in laws, Lori Ann Williams of Santa Cruz, California, and James Robert (Carol) Jones II of Santa Cruz, California.

Trish was preceded in death by her parents; maternal grandparents, Charlie and Edith Clark; and paternal grandparents, Finas (Crystal) Shaffer; Richard's parents, James R. and Francis Jones; a brother-in-law, Thomas Michael Jones.
