Obituary: Carolyn Costangy Wasser

Carolyn Constangy Wasser died on March 15, 2021, at the age of 87.

Carolyn Constangy Wasser died on March 15, 2021, at the age of 87. An Atlanta native, Carolyn met her husband Richard while she was a student at North Fulton High School. A lifelong learner, Carolyn resumed her education as an adult at Oglethorpe University, from which she graduated in 1979. She subsequently pursued a career in social work at The Link, Meals On Wheels and Visiting Nurse Association.

In her spare time, Carolyn was a docent at The Temple and the High Museum of Art. Carolyn’s true calling, however, was as a grandmother. She delighted in Saturday mornings spent with her grandchildren and enthusiastically embraced their hobbies and academic interests. Granny, as she was lovingly called, was not above purchasing SparkNotes in order to keep up with her grandkids’ various high school classes.

Carolyn was predeceased by her parents Frank and Eleanor Constangy; her husband Dick Wasser; and her granddaughter Alex Wasser. She is survived by her sons Neil Wasser (Valerie Habif) and Glenn Wasser (Joan); her grandchildren Frank (Hartley), Brent (Raleigh), Keith, Ellie Deedy (Chris) and Aaron; and great-grandchildren Eli Wasser and Juniper Wasser.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Temple or the Frank A. Constangy Scholarship Fund at the University of Georgia Law School, 120 Herty Drive, Athens, Ga. 30602. A private family graveside service will be held with Rabbi Peter Berg officiating. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999. Sign online guest book at
