On Saturday, March 13, 2021, our Almighty Lord wrapped his arms around Joan F. Arp, 78, of Liberty Township and carried her to her heavenly home. Joan was born February 28, 1943 in Youngstown, Ohio, the daughter of Louis and Katherine (Popovich) Kunovich. Joan was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Girard and a member of the church's care team, bereavement committee, and taught Sunday School when her children were younger. Joan was a homemaker and stayed home to raise her children. She enjoyed playing bingo, needlepoint and was so proud of her collection of Santa Clauses. Joan loved to participate in the many fun activities and outings that were offered at Liberty Arms Assisted Living. Joan will miss all of her cherished friendships, especially those she resided with. She leaves to cherish her memory, her children, Mark (Mary) Arp, of Hermitage, PA., and her daughter Kelly Hontula, of Liberty Twp.; sister Maureen Perrico, of Las Vegas, Nevada and grandson, Nicholas Arp. Besides her parents, Joan is preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth J. Arp, whom she married October 9, 1965 and died May 5, 2014, and her brother, James Kunovich. Memorial services will be held on Saturday, March 20th, 12:00 PM at Blackstone Funeral Home, where the family will receive relatives and friends from 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests any memorial contributions made to the Activities Department at Liberty Arms Assisted Living, in Joan's memory.
