Joan Ann Moss
September 16, 1935 - June 9, 2022

Joan A. Moss, 86, of Bolivia NC, went home to be with God and her husband on Thursday, June 9, 2022. She was born on Monday, September 16, 1935 in Philadelphia, PA to the late Louis V. Shaw and Anna Schmidt. Joan was the loving wife to her husband, Jack of 67 years.

She was a Homemaker and raised 5 children, which were the core of her being. Instilling love and responsibility into her children’s daily lives was key to her mission in life. She was so very proud of all her children and their spouses, as well as her grandchildren and their spouses. She surrounded her home with many of her family’s pictures. After she raised her children, she obtained her Associates degree in Wellness and pursued a few career opportunities. She had a thirst for learning and perpetually sought wisdom through books, the internet and human connection. She loved to nurture others through her own life experiences and knowledge.

She is survived by her loving children, John Moss of Atlanta, GA, Julia Reiser of Charleston, SC, James Moss and his wife, Sondra of Pittsburgh, PA, Joseph Moss of Hagerstown, MD, June Ann Moss of Wilmington, NC and her 6 grandchildren, Richard Moss, Nicole Parsons, Rachael Staats, Ian Moss, Emma Moss, and Valerie Moss.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband Jack Moss.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to all her caregivers for having been there for her over the years, always so responsive to all her needs; and a special thanks to all her children, daughter-in-law, Sondra and grandchildren for all the love and support they provided her towards the end of her life.

Our mother will be sorely missed by all, but now she is at peace with her husband, Jack.
