April 4, 1976 — July 31, 2020


Natalie   Christine Preas, age 44, of Alliance, passed away unexpectedly on Friday July 31, 2020 at Aultman Alliance Community Hospital.

Natalie was born April 4, 1976 to Donald L. Preas and Marilyn (Hall) Preas Cunningham. She was a graduate of Marlington High School and went on to attend ETI Technical College in Canton, Ohio. She worked taking care of others as a home health care aide.

Natalie was a beautiful young girl who loved baton, dance, and softball. She was some-what shy and yet was creative and mischievous. She was a caring soul and always wanted to help the underdog.  Her heart was giving. She struggled in life to find her way but recently said that she was blessed with the love of her family, especially her three sons, David, Dylan, and Donaven. Her family seeks to honor her memory with love and grace.

Those left to cherish her memory are her mother, Marilyn Preas Cunningham and Jim Cunningham; her sons, David Preas, Dylan Rodkey, and Donaven Pearson; her companion, Frank Rowan; her brother, Aaron (Amanda) Preas; nieces, Isabella Preas, and Arianna Preas, Tasha (Nicholas) Costoff and children; nephews, Alex (Kristen) Preas, Cade Bethel; aunt, Ruthie Hall; her cousins, Melanie Wilson, Matthew Hall, Linda Hess, Gary Hall, and William Hall.

Natalie was preceded in death by her father, Donald Preas; maternal grandparents, Marvin and Veronica Hall; paternal grandparents, Willie and Christine Preas; uncles, Fred Preas, Melvyn Hall, and Gary Hall.
