Our deepest condolences to Joyce's family...
My husband is Larry Carlson of the class of 1964. His sister just passed away on Friday, March 13th and she was BHS class of 1957. Her names was Joyce Carlson at BHS. Her name at the last reunion she attended just a few years ago was Joyce Carlson Glenn.
Thanks, Joy Carlson
Joyce Carlson/Maddox/Glenn passed away due to complications from diabetes on March 13, 2015, at the age of 75, in the care of the Irvine Kaiser-Permanente Hospital. She is survived by her ex-husband Don Maddox, husband Tom Glenn, brother and sister-in-law Larry and Joy Carlson, the family of her first daughter Becky Brewer, the family of her second daughter Jennifer Maddox and the family of her son Tim Maddox.
Joyce was born on December 26th, 1939 in Burbank, California, to Marie Louise Carlson and Everett Carlson. She graduated from Burbank High School in 1957 and went on to successfully pursue a nursing degree from Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital. Joyce was a Critical Care Nurse at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, California, for over 20 years and retired as a hospice nurse in 2013.
Joyce is remembered as a vivacious and spirited soul, known for her strong will and compassionate care. In her later years, Joyce traveled to Israel and Africa on medical missions, extending the experience of her years of service to the most needy in the world. She also loved to dote on her grandchildren and spend long days relaxing at the beach.
A memorial service is planned for later this year.
