Susan Gaujot Metzloff, 60, passed away on January 31, 2013 after a lengthy and heroic battle with brain cancer. Her enthusiasm for life, beautiful smile, and indomitable spirit continued to her final days. Susan was a beloved wife, mother and grandmother who will be missed greatly by all who knew her. She had a real passion for life, which was most evident in the raising of her three loving children, her years as a recruiter at Meditech, her tenure as Trustee and Director of Parent Involvement at The Paideia School, her service as Elder on the Outreach Committee at Northwest Presbyterian Church, and her legion of friends and admirers. She was preceded in death by her father, Flournoy Gaujot, and mother, Mary Ella Gibson Gaujot of Pennington Gap, VA. She is survived by her husband of 35 years, James Metzloff, her son Joey Metzloff and wife Kim of Washington, IL, her son Scott Metzloff and wife Claire of Atlanta, her daughter Rebecca Metzloff of Atlanta; and two grandchildren, Amelia Susan Metzloff and Emerson Price Metzloff who were the delight of her last year of life. A memorial service will be held at noon on Tuesday, February 5 at Northwest Presbyterian Church, 4300 Northside Drive, Atlanta, GA 30327. Final arrangements have been handled by Wages and Sons Funeral Home in Stone Mountain, GA.

Memories Timeline


  1. I can’t express how sorry we are for your loss. Although we haven’t seen Susan much in too many years, our memories of her, and all of you, are vivid. We are thinking of you.
    Much Love,

  2. Susan was more alive in the throes of cancer than many ‘healthy’ people I encounter every day. I will miss having her physical presence in my life, but her joyful encouragement will remain, I’m sure.

  3. I am so sorry to hear about Susan. I’ve known her since I can remember. We played together as children, took dance and performed together and were cheerleaders for the PHS Bobcats in the ’60’s. I am so glad I got to see her at the reunion last summer. My deepest sympathy to her family.

  4. My deepest sympathies to the family. I never met Susan in person but worked with her over the phone and via email in her role as administrator for the Tuxedo Park Homeowners Association. I was always in awe of her positive attitude in the midst of her struggles. She will remain an inspiration of how to live even in the darkest moments. My condolences to the family.
