Henry "Mickey" Michael Mauney

December 5, 1946 — October 6, 2023

Wrens, GA

Wrens and the entire community mourns the loss of beloved teacher and administrator, Henry "Mickey" Michael Mauney, 76, who tragically passed away on October 6, 2023, in a fatal automobile accident.  Services with military honors to celebrate his life will be held at 6:00PM Friday evening, October 13, 2023 at Wrens Baptist Church with Dr. Mason Davis officiating. The family will receive friends after the services.

Born in Leesburg, Florida, to the late Annie Peebles Mauney and the late Charles "Fred" Mauney, Mickey has made his home in Wrens since he was a young boy when his family moved from Florida.

Mickey's journey in education began after he graduated from Wrens High School in 1965. During his time in high school, he showcased his passion for sports by actively participating in football. Never failing to continue pursuing knowledge, Mickey went on to receive a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Augusta College in 1969. Following this accomplishment, he proudly served the nation as a member of the U.S. Army from 1969 to 1971.

After completing his military service, Mickey returned to his educational pursuits at Augusta College once again. In 1979, he received his Master's degree in Education. Demonstrating an unwavering commitment to personal growth and lifelong learning, Mickey continued his studies at Georgia Southern College where he earned a degree as an Education Specialist in 1982.

Mickey's illustrious career as an educator was marked by dedication and an unyielding commitment to excellence. He began his professional journey as a teacher before serving as an Administrator at both Wrens High School and Wrens Middle School. Among his many accomplishments was his significant contribution to education through teaching GED classes at Davisboro Women's Prison.

Beyond the walls of classrooms and lecture halls, Mickey possessed a deep love for sports, with football and baseball holding special places in his heart. He generously shared his knowledge and passion for these sports by coaching football and baseball teams during his tenure at Wrens High School. When he wasn't on the field or in the classroom, Mickey found solace in the quiet moments spent fishing. He also took great pleasure in gardening and working tirelessly in his yards.

Mickey's warm and sociable nature was evident to all who had the privilege of knowing him. He was known for his kind and approachable personality, always taking the time to greet everyone he crossed paths with on his daily walks.  With a smile on his face and an easy-going disposition, Mickey's presence brought joy to those around him.

His selfless nature served as a guiding light throughout his life. Mickey was always more concerned about others and his family than himself. He possessed an inherent optimism that uplifted those around him, especially during challenging times. His dry-wit and great sense of humor was infectious, drawing smiles from all who were fortunate enough to share in its warmth. In the community, Mickey was regarded as a pillar of support and a true friend to many.

Above all else, Mickey adored his family. His wife, the late Carolyn Lee Arrington Mauney, held a special place in his heart, providing unwavering love and support throughout their journey together. The bond he shared with his children and his grandson, Mickey’s special buddy who held a unique place in his heart, was unbreakable and filled with cherished memories.

Though we mourn the loss of this remarkable individual whose journey ended too soon, let us remember the light that Mickey brought into our lives. His dedication as an educator, his love for sports, and his selfless nature have left an indelible mark on our community. He may no longer be with us physically, but the memories we hold dear and the impact he has made on our lives will forever remain. May we find solace and strength in our collective memories as we celebrate the life of this extraordinary individual.

Mickey is also preceded in death by his daughter, Lisa Mauney. Those left to cherish his memory include his children, Stephen Michael Mauney and April M. Standard; grandson, Timothy “Michael” Standard; brother, John Robert Mauney; sister, Joanie M. Williford (Dwight); other extended family, and many friends.

The family will also have a “drop-in” for friends from 4:00 – 5:15PM Friday evening, October 13, 2023, at 308 Stone Street, Wrens.
