Carol J Preston

Carol J. Preston, 93, of Garden City, South Carolina entered into rest July 31, 2022.  She was born January 20, 1929 in Clymer, NY, to the late Robert and Blanche Hewes.  

          Carol graduated from Clymer High School and Jamestown Business School.  She worked at the former J.N. Adams Hospital until her retirement.

          Carol always enjoyed cooking, playing games, needlepoint, ceramics, and reading.  She had a passion for watching sports and was an avid Atlanta Braves and Buffalo Bills fan.

          She is survived by her loving children Kenton (Marijo) Roush and Rhonda (James) Moore; the very proud grandparent of Scott (Audrey) Roush, Eric (Sara) Moore, Cristin (Martin) Benz, Meryl Roush, Anton (Susan) Roush; her great-grandchildren, Autumn, Lilian, Emma, Ethan, Alex, Pierre, Bryce, Ashton; and many nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Richard Preston; and her three sisters Joyce Nickerson, Barbara Wiltsie, and Lora Briggs.

Relatives and friends may visit Roberts Memorial Free Methodist Church 111 South St. Cattaraugus Friday from 7PM to 9PM. 

A graveside service will be held Saturday 10AM at Liberty Park Cemetery 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to your local food pantry.

Arrangements entrusted to DiStasio Funeral Home Inc.


My deepest condolences. I had the pleasure of knowing Carol through working at the Palmetto Gardens. I looked forward to seeing her every week, talking sports and things that were important to her in her life. Each Sunday I would look for her to come to the front door, dressed for church and then spending the day with her son. She was a sweet lady whom I will miss.
