Mrs. Andrea Mojica Preston, 31, of Mocksville, died Friday, Sept. 16, 2016 at the Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home in Winston-Salem.

She was born Aug. 14, 1985, in Davie County to Rogelio and Eva Murillo Mojica. She was a 2003 graduate of Davie High School. Most recently, she was employed at Gastroenterology Associates of the Piedmont in Winston-Salem. She had a kind heart and compassionate soul. She always thought of others before herself and was always willing to help someone in need. Behind her sweet, loving smile, she housed a charm that would draw anyone to her and a wit that would keep you coming back. She was family oriented and was happiest when all her family was gathered together. Her pride and joy was her young daughter, Lidia; the spitting image of her with almond shaped eyes and dark, curly hair.

Also surviving: her husband, Mike Preston; daughter, Lidia Brooke; sister, Alex Moreno and husband Ricardo; brother, Roy Mojica and wife Katy; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Kim and Jeff Kirkman; sister-in-law, Carisa Benford and husband Matthew; and nephews and nieces, Danny and Adam Moreno, Emery and Preston Benford and Carmen Mojica; as well as her loving dog Papi.

A celebration of her life will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21 at Hayworth-Miller Kinderton Chapel in Advance.  The family will receive friends from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20 at Hayworth-Miller in Advance.
