    Carole W. Metzger, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. A lover of birds, bridge, books, plants, art, and travel, Carole was born in the Bronx, New York, and raised on the Grand Concourse but lived in Atlanta long enough to claim an almost-authentic Southern accent. As a dancer, Carole attended the High School of Performing Arts in New York City. Performing in many summer stock productions, Carole worked her way through Brandeis in three years and graduated summa cum laude. After graduation, she became the first woman to work as an analyst on the floor at Bear Stearns.

    Carole held a master’s degree in social work. She began her career at Jewish Family Services and then worked at Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Atlanta for well over a decade. She was a docent at the High Museum, served on a hospice board, and, in the wake of the 2016 election, became a passionate advocate for progressive candidates.

    Carole was an extraordinary bridge player and Gold Life Master. More importantly, Carole was a generous mentor who loved teaching others to improve their bridge skills. She also was an avid collector of contemporary art, including photography and ceramics. She took great pleasure in her book club, the New York Times, her garden, the theater, and dance.

    For 57 years, Carole was married to her adoring husband, Nathan Metzger—the great love of her life. She was devoted to her three daughters, Pamela, Rebecca, and Jennifer Metzger, nine grandchildren, Cole, Grace, Phoebe, Jonah, Marley, Addie, Dash, Luca, and Bodhi, and an Australian Labradoodle, Tessa, that she handpicked from a litter of nine.

    Graveside services will be held on Wednesday, July 28, 2021, at 3:00 p.m. at Arlington Memorial Park, 201 Mount Vernon Highway, Atlanta, GA 30328. Shiva will be held, and the family will be receiving, on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, at the family home, 5275 New London Trace, Atlanta, GA 30327. Donations in honor of Carole Metzger can be made to the Penland School of Craft, either online or at PO Box 37, Penland, NC 28765-0037. May her memory be a blessing.

    The most wonderful tribute to a great woman. The honor that Carol's three daughters bestowed on her spoke volumes to the woman. Each shared personal stories, both good and not so good but all said she was a great mom. More importantly, she was their best friend. Carol had two rules; family comes first. Her second rule, see rule #1. I will miss her in so many ways as many others will as well. Thanks to the family for sharing these moments.

    My deepest sympathy to the family. I loved seeing Carol at the bridge club - she was by far the best dressed! But she was also a wonderful player and never gave up at the table. We will miss her presence.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Sending hugs to Rebecca and the entire Metzger family on this very sad day. Carole was a bright light and I was lucky to have known her from the time I was a child at the ballet studio and an adult at the yoga studio. I will always remember her warmth, kindness, and the pride and love she felt for her beloved family. May her memory be a blessing always.
