Patricia “Trish” Lohnes was born on February 20, 1984 in Watertown, South Dakota to Judy Locke and Darrell Lohnes. She attended the Enemy Swim Day School, Tiospa Zina Tribal School and Nemo Job Corp. in Box Elder, South Dakota. She earned her GED in Rapid City, South Dakota.

Trish was an inspiring artist and writer. In life her writing spoke of struggles and resiliency and always finding love and understanding as an outcome.

Throughout her life, she held various positions but the one job she loved the most was taking care of her children. She loved and lived for her babies and she would do anything for them. In 2016, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent chemotherapy treatments and the cancer went into remission. In May 2018, she was blessed with the conception of another life even though the doctors said she would not be able to conceive after the chemo treatments. As she was going through her prenatal care it was discovered that the cancer had returned, and the doctors recommended that she terminate her pregnancy. However, Tricia refused their recommendation and chose to give her miracle baby life. Some people may not understand, but when Tricia was faced with the situation of battling cancer again or the love that comes with bringing a new life into the world, Trish chose love. Early in her pregnancy Trish and her girls decided to name the baby Rarity Ann. The goal was to get Rarity to 24 weeks gestation where she would have a 50/50 chance to survive. When babies are premature the chances for them to survive are often difficult, yet Trish was determined to give her baby every chance possible. The doctors did all they could but on October 29, 2018 Rarity was called home to Jesus without ever leaving the comfort of her mother’s womb. In life Trish loved spending time and doing things with her kids and her family, going to the lakes, water parks and cook outs in the summer. She enjoyed shopping and spending time googling on her phone and being on Facebook with her friends. Trish loved to spend time with her nieces and nephews, taking care of them and helping others was something she loved to do. Trish treasured all her friendships that she made throughout her life. She loved each and every one of you. On November 1, 2018 Trish made her spiritual journey home. She is survived by her parents: Judy Locke and Darrell Lohnes; children: Keauna Jealous, Tamia, Tahviya, Nyeema and Nyah Lohnes; brother: Anthony and Mary Locke & their children Leighton, Alivia, Lyla, Alily and Noah; sisters: Shannon Keoke & her children Malvin, LeeRay, Toddie, Gabe and Jayden, Shanda Locke and her children Jade, Chloe, Kyla and Journie, Nicole Locke and her children George and Landon, Mniyata Hill and her children Telance, Stone, Brock & Kyler, Kristen Backman; and special cousin sister: Geri Locke and her children.
