Theresa Ann Carnes, age 79, of Newark, Ohio was called home by the Lord she loved on December 18, 2018. She was born in Wallins Creek, KY on April 16, 1939 to parents Rex F. Taylor and Thelma (Martin) Taylor. Theresa graduated from Wallins High School and received her Bachelor of Science degree from University of the Cumberlands.
