Joan Glauberman

Joan Eva Glauberman, 82, passed away July 28, 2022. She was born Jan. 26, 1940, to Morris and Henrietta (Henny) Bernofsky in the Bronx and grew up in Sunnyside, New York. She raised her three daughters — Ellen, Gail and Sharon — in Queens before moving the family to Dallas.

Throughout her career, Joan’s work always highlighted her care and attention to detail. She worked for many years at Behringer Harvard and most recently she worked as a teacher’s aide at Temple Emanu-El’s preschool, sharing her love with a new generation of children.

Joan’s greatest purpose was always supporting and loving her family and friends. Her grandkids lovingly named her Mima and she became known as “Mima” to all. She was blessed to have many friends who we know will miss her dearly.

Joan was preceded in death by daughter Ellen Kleinman and son-in-law Michael Kirsch.

Joan is survived by her daughters, Gail Kirsch and Sharon Wilson; her sons-in-law, Dr. Michael Kleinman and Andy Wilson; and her grandchildren, Alyssa Higgins (Jared), Jonathan Kleinman (Rachel), Marc Kirsch, Mackenzie Kleinman, Andrew Wilson and Matthew Wilson.

Joan’s eight grandchildren with guidance from Rabbi Andrew Paley, officiated at a funeral service at Sparkman Hillcrest Memorial Park on July 31, 2022

If inspired to do so, a contribution can be made in her memory to Temple Shalom Dallas, the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association or the charity of one’s choice.
