Burnis (Nadler) Metz
Born 1925
Died 2020 in Syracuse, NY

Burnis Metz, 94, died at her home Tuesday afternoon. Born on August 13, 1925 in Syracuse to Samuel and Rose Nadler, she was a life resident of Syracuse. Burnis graduated from Central High School and in 1947 she married Irving, her high school sweetheart. They settled in Syracuse and raised their four children here.
Burnis was a former member of Temple Adath Yeshurun, and an active member of the Kimry Moor book club. What really mattered to her was being a wonderful mother and grandmother. She taught them important life lessons; like how a jacket should fit, or the way the best fresh vegetables should look and smell. Everyone knew her by her well earned title of “soup goddess”! Her love will endure forever.
Burnis was predeceased by her husband Irving in 1991.
Her family includes her children Philip (Robin) Metz, Linda (Allen) Birnbaum, Jill (Jay Lurie) Metz Brooks, and Samuel Metz; 9 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren; and her sister-in-law Esther Janoff.
Private graveside services for the immediate family are in Beth El Cemetery.
