Theresa spent most of her life living in Humboldt County. After losing her parents at a young age, she was taken in by David and Kathy Walters until she started a family of her own. Theresa had four children with Lee Conoboy and although they had separated, they were supportive in raising their kids. Her children were her world and before long, her grandkids were.

In 2019, after her husband lost his battle with cancer, she moved to Klamath near her sister and brother.

Theresa had worked hard all her life. She held several job titles, including baker, cashier, caregiver, and more. She had mostly enjoyed spending time volunteering at the Humboldt County Coroner’s Office, acquiring the experience of an autopsy technician. Theresa was fond of the officers she worked with. She always had an inner detective and a nose for news.
