Kathy L. Carnes, 67, of Mt. Pleasant, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, Aug. 26, 2023, when she passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her family.

She was born July 25, 1956, in McKeesport, and was a daughter of the late Harold “Poison” and Josephine “Dolly” (Goslicky) Weigand. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her infant son, Jeremy; and her brother, Kerry H. Weigand.

Prior to retiring, she was a phlebotomist, having worked at Forbes Hospital for 12 years. She had also helped her husband for more than 30 years at their business in Mt. Pleasant, Carnes Auto, in the office. Kathy was a member of The Church, in Sutersville. She loved to listen to, and also sing, gospel music. She also enjoyed going to bingo. She was a “cat mom” to her many cats. Her family meant the world to her, especially her grandchildren, holding a special place in her heart.

Kathy is survived by her beloved husband and caregiver of 34 years, John “Bob” Carnes Sr.; her daughter, Jennifer (James) Bauer, of Charleroi; three sons, Jamie (Tracey) Pomaibo, of Penn Trafford, Michael (Wendy Bergmark) Pomaibo, of Venetia, and John R.

Kathy will be forever be remembered for being selfless; she always put others before herself. She will be dearly missed by her family, friends and customers she made over the years at the shop.
