Joel Bennett Mauney

Joel Bennett Mauney, age 93, passed away at Hospice Cleveland County on October 13, 2022.

Born in Cherryville, NC on August 19, 1929, he was the son of the late Floyd Lee Mauney and Lula Beam. After serving in the U.S. Air Force and graduating from Lenoir-Rhyne, he taught business administration and supervised vocational education in the Gaston County Public Schools until retirement. He lived most of his adult life in Shelby, where he belonged to Second Baptist Church. He will be especially remembered for devotion to faith and family and an unrelenting fondness for desserts, flowers, and countless cats, dogs, rabbits, and birds.

Joel was preceded in death by his wife of nearly 58 years, Jo Ann Mauney, in June 2022. He was the last surviving son of 5 siblings: Robert L. Mauney, Harold H. Mauney, Marie Bookout Nestlerode, and Ruth E. Mauney, all of Cherryville, and Ray D. Mauney of Gainesville, GA.

Joel is survived by his son Duane Joel Mauney, an attorney in Washington, DC, as well as by a sister-in-law, Eloise Mauney of Cherryville, nieces and nephews he adored, special family friend Gary Kloosterman of Shelby, and exemplary caregivers who kept Joel and Jo Ann comfortable and safe.

A funeral service will be held 2:00PM Wednesday October 19, 2022 at the chapel of Cecil M. Burton Funeral Home & Crematory with Pastor Jeremy Peeler officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Burial will follow the service in Cleveland Memorial Park.
