Katelyn Rose Preston

Katelyn Rose Preston "Katie Bug"

Katelyn Rose Preston "Katie Bug" was granted her angel wings Feb 18th 2013 following a lifelong battle to cystic fibrosis. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Katie had touched in some way throughout her short but memorable life.

Katie's life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her understood that the quality of life far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives.

Katie is survived by her parents; grandparents; siblings; a niece; aunts; uncles; cousins; and many friends.

There will be a candlelight vigil held Friday at 8pm, at 1076 National Drive Marion, OH, and a memorial service held Sunday at 3PM at Edison Enterprise Baptist Church 3055 Ohio 95 Edison, OH 43320.
