Let the memory of Joan be with us forever. Love You To The Moon And Back.
  • 53 years old
  • Born on March 20, 1962 in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, United States.
  • Passed away on June 19, 2015 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States.

Joan A. (Arana) Hartpence, 53, a resident of Upper Salford Township, PA., went to her Lord and Savior on June 19, 2015 at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania after a long, hard, fight against cancer. She was the loving partner of Harry C. Mosey. 

Born March 20, 1962, she was a daughter of the late Louis Arana and Evelyn (Bishop) Arana. 

Surviving are her two sons, Alan L. Hartpence and his husband, Angel Hartpence, of Mechanicsburg, PA, and Bryan S. Hartpence and his fiancé, Rebecca Ort, of Marysville, PA; and her daughter, Kari-Ann A. Mosey of Upper Salford Township. She is also survived by her sister, Jane Walker and her husband, Harvey; and her niece, Jolene Hoffman, who was helping to take care of Joan at home. In addition, she was survived by many close cousins and friends.

Joan was a loving mother who was happiest when all of her family was together and enjoying her home-cooked meals. She enjoyed what became known as make-up day where her son, Alan, would do her hair and make-up. She also enjoyed going to the beach. Joan was eagerly awaiting her first granddaughter and was in the middle of making a baby blanket for her. 

Per Joan’s wishes, her remains were cremated by the R. L. Williams Jr. Funeral Home, Inc. of Skippack, PA. Although no service is to be held, a memorial picnic will be held on July 18, 2015 at the Upper Salford Township Park. Friends and family are invited to attend.


This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Joan Hartpence, 53, born on March 20, 1962 and passed away on June 19, 2015. We will remember her forever.
