Sue Ellen Preston

Sue Ellen Preston, 65, of Marathon, NY, passed away on Thursday, June 16, 2022, at the Cayuga Medical Center, Ithaca, NY, while surrounded by her family.

She is survived by her lifetime companion, Andrew Lenna, of Marathon; and her daughters, Brandy (Richard) Wilson of Jacksonville, FL and Amber (Barry Morris) Restani of Syracuse.  She also leaves behind her grandchildren, Torri, Jason, Jr., Shaina, Destynie, Abbi, Sierra, Chevy, Aaliyah, Johnny, Victoria, Dakota, Richard, Hannah, and Joshua; six great-grandchildren, including her special great-grandchildren, Jordan and St. Claire; brothers, Bobby (Michele) LaGore, Jr. of OH and Scott Bailey of UT; a sister, Cheri LaGore of TX; her dear friend, Holly McAllister; several nieces, nephews and cousins.


In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by a son, Jason Barry, Sr., on November 15, 2013.


A Celebration of Sue’s Life will be held at a later date and time.
