Margie Mauney Homesley

September 2, 1935 — December 5, 2023

Cherryville

Margie Mauney Homesley, age 88, passed away peacefully and surrounded by family on Tuesday, December 5, 2023, at 8:40 p.m., at Peak Resources in Cherryville, North Carolina. She was born September 2, 1935, in Gaston County to the late Noah Matthew and Bessie Mae Mauney.

 

Margie was a longtime member of First Baptist Church of Cherryville where she enjoyed teaching Mission Friends and working with the Food Service Committee. She was at her best in her kitchen preparing homemade bread, canning pickles and jelly, or trying to win prizes on WCSL. For many years, she brought smiles to many faces working behind the cash register, alongside her husband Don, at Triple H Restaurant. A bright fixture of the community, Margie will be remembered for her infectious smile, kind heart and warm spirit.

 

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, Donald Richard Homesley, and brothers Noah “Pete”, James “Jim”, Thomas “Tom”, and John “Jig” Mauney.

 

Survivors include her three daughters and sons-in-law Lori H. and Dale Gates, Caroline H. and Lance Frady, and Jennifer H. and Jon Abernethy; grandchildren Austin and Will Gates, Seth Frady, Macy West (husband Charles) and Noah Abernethy; and brothers Bill and Frank Mauney.

 

Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, December 17, 2023, at First Baptist Church in Cherryville with Rev. Dr. Vince Hefner officiating. The family will receive friends before the service from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m., and other times at 211 Amos Homesley Road, Cherryville. Burial will follow at the Cherryville City Memorial Cemetery.
