Jeanne Metzger’s Herald Career was Start of a Lasting Legacy
by Julie Muhlstein
Jeanne Metzger, a Herald editor for decades, was a strong and savvy career woman at a time when it wasn’t the norm for a mother of four to work outside the home. She became an ardent advocate of hospice care, and a philanthropist whose generosity will leave a lasting legacy. And her ferocious love for family and friends never waned. At 89, she died Wednesday at her north Everett home. She had been diagnosed with bile duct cancer 18 months ago. Her last days were spent in the constant care of her daughters, Jan Brossman, Jo Metzger-Levin, Meg Metzger and Maddy Metzger-Utt.
