Marcia Leder Goldman was born Nov. 15, 1947, in Jacksonville, N.C., to Sam and Sylvia Leder. She was raised in Eastern North Carolina, surrounded by her large family. After graduating from the University of Georgia, she moved to Atlanta in 1969, where she lived until her death.
She married Murray Goldman in 1973 and partnered with him raising their son and growing a successful business. Marcia was a bright light to everyone who knew her. She was passionate about her family and philanthropic endeavors revolving around Jewish education, Hadassah Hospital, and her synagogue of over 30 years, Congregation B’nai Torah, and was active with Murray fighting anti-Semitism and hate. She succumbed to pancreatic cancer Nov. 5, 2019, surrounded by family and friends after a valiant more than two-year battle. She is survived by her husband Murray; son Jeremy; daughter-in-law Gill; and grandchildren Hannah and Oliver, all of Atlanta. She is also survived by her brother Nathan Leder, and sister-in-law Sandy Leder of Weston, Fla.
