Joseph F. Mirley Jr

1940 - 2019



Joseph F. Mirley Jr. , a longtime resident of Malden who recently moved to Reading, passed away on Friday, May 31st, after a lengthy battle with Parkinson’d Disease.  Joseph  was born in Cambridge in 1940, the son of Joseph F Sr. and Margaret (Daley) Mirley.  He was raised in Malden and graduated from Malden High School with the Class of 1959.  He then enlisted in the US Air Force, and served honorably until his discharge in 1962.  In 1963, he married his sweetheart, Eleanor G. Bellibeau, and the two settled down together in Malden to raise their family. 

Joe went to work for New England Telephone, which later became AT&T, working as a telephone repairman.  After his retirement, he took a position with the American Cancer Society, driving patients to and from the hospital.  In his spare time, he enjoyed taking walks and tending to the Yard.  He also loved to watch the Celtics, Red Sox, and Oklahoma Sooners.  His greatest joy though, was spending time with his grandchildren. 

He is survived by his wife, Eleanor G. Mirley, his son Donald J. Mirley of Everett, his daughter Kristin Jones of Reading, his sister Joan Donnelly of Malden, his brothers, Thomas Mirley of NH, and James Mirley of FL, and his grandsons, Michael and Steven.

Funeral  Services for Joe will be held graveside at Forest Dale Cemetery, 150 Forest St, Malden,  on Tuesday, June 4th, at 11 AM.
