James Marlin Mohney, 82, of Hawthorn, died on Monday morning, October 4, 2021 at the Penn Highlands DuBois Hospital. Born on March 21, 1939 in Hawthorn, he was the son of the late James A. and Gladys Madeline (Minich) Mohney.  He married Dolores “Dottie” (Stewart) Mohney on July 8, 1961.

Marlin worked as a mechanic for Minich and Mohney Garage in Hawthorn. He proudly served his country in the United States Air Force from 1960 to 1964.

Craig Post # 354 of New Bethlehem American Legion, the Hawthorn Cemetery Board, the Christian Bowhunters of America, and the Hawthorn Rod and Gun Club where he served as President.
