Co-founder of HEAF Joanna Semel Rose passed away aged 91

Joanna Rose Death – Cause of Death – Joanna Semel Rose, supporter and co-founder of HEAF and also member of the HEAF Board of Directors, has passed away at the age of 91. She died on the 13th of November 2021 at her home in Manhattan. She was a philanthropist, trailblazer and luminary for the Harlem Educational Activities Fund. She co-founded HEAF together with her husband of 65 years, Daniel Rose.

Joanna was a visionary who believed firmly in the power of, and right to, a solid education to open doors to opportunity for all students. She was an educationist who loved knowledge. HEAF described Joanna as someone who “led an incredible life full of leadership and giving, from her role as Chairman of the Board of Partisan Review magazine, to producer at the Theatre Guild, to founding numerous arts organizations, and, of course, her special role at HEAF.”

We send our prayers and condolences to Dan Rose, Dan and Joanna’s four children, their 11 grandchildren, and the extended family and everyone whose lives were touched by Joanna through her grace and advocacy. You can read more about Joanna in her obituary.

HEAF said in tribute; “The HEAF community mourns the loss of Joanna Rose – philanthropist, trailblazer and guiding light for the Harlem Educational Activities Fund. Our deepest condolences to the Rose family.”
