Obituary for Teresa Lynn Olinger

Teresa Lynn Olinger passed away peacefully in her childhood home in Clay City, Kentucky on March 3, 2018 after a courageous battle with cancer. Teresa was born on September 9, 1965 to Bobby Carl and Linda Lou Powell in Winchester, KY. She is preceded in death by her parents, Bobby and Linda, her brothers Billy Joe and Bobby Carl Jr., and sister Donna Sue. She is survived by her brother Kenneth Ray Powell, children Heather Michelle Burcham, Avery Owen Powell, and Linda Marie Bartley, Sister-in-law Jacqueline Powell, nephews Robert Carl and Jack Zachary Powell, and niece Lacey Elizabeth Powell and countless loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Teresa was a smart and funny woman who brought joy into the life of anyone who was lucky enough to have known her. A graduate of Powell County High School, she later attended Bluegrass Community and Technical College, majoring in Health Information Technology. She worked at the V.A. Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky after graduating college.

Teresa finally found the love of her life in her boyfriend, Lee Crowe, shortly before learning of her cancer diagnosis. Despite their short time together, he faithfully stood by her side. Additionally, her cousins Elizabeth Ballou, Vonetta Tharpe, Cathy Jones, and Darlene Glover spent many hours with her during her multiple hospital stays, making sure she was well taken care of.

A celebration of Teresa’s life will be held in the spring in the Natural Bridge area at a date to be determined. All family and friends will be invited.
