She attended Hamakuapoko elementary school, Pāʻia school, Holy Rosary school and was a proud member of the St. Anthony Girls High School class of 1965.

She was offered the position of school librarian in 1981 which she accepted and held for over 30 years. While she was working at Seabury Hall she helped plan the school’s new library and earned her master’s degree in information science from the University of Hawaii at Manoa in 1991.

Roxanne Marie Carlson, born on Christmas Day in 1951, went to be with the Lord on Sept. 29, 2021 at the age of 69, dying peacefully in her sleep while at home in Maui, Hawaiʻi.
Roxanne was one of the Lord’s most dependable angels here on earth, spreading His word everywhere she went. She is greatly missed by all her family and friends all over the country.
Roxanne devoted her whole life to the Lord, getting her nursing degree at Roberts Wesleyan College which ultimately, along with the Church, led her to a school nurse position at the Doris Todd Christian Academy in Maui, where she served for 43 years.

Roxanne is survived by siblings Richard (Diane) Carlson, David (Mary) Carlson, James Carlson, Jeff (Suzie) Carlson, Nancy (Mike Stasch) Ensman, Linda (Mike) Jamalkowski and John Carlson. Also Aunt Joyce Carlson, along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Memorial arrangements are being made at this time in NY as well as in Maui. In lieu of flowers, contributions are encouraged to be made to the Doris Todd Christian Academy.
