Ann S. Rosen

Ann S. Rosen, born March 14, 1931, died March 13, 2023, one day short of her 92nd birthday.

We lost our mom and we’re going to miss her. She was happily married to Stanley Rosen for 68 years – wow! The world is going to miss a camp counselor, teacher, gardener extraordinaire, and collector of absolutely everything – especially experiences, friends, and people in need. And if you knew her long enough, and don’t know how to do a headstand or hang a spoon on the end of your nose, it’s not her fault.

Ann was predeceased by her husband, Stanley Rosen, her parents, Abraham and Francis Shapiro, her daughter, Kathi Rosen, her brother, Richard Shapiro and her nephew, Alan Shapiro. She is survived by her sons, Dr. Michael Rosen (Becky Rosen, who was more like a daughter than a daughter-in-law), and Andrew Rosen, Esq., her beloved grandchildren, Molly Rosen and Zach Rosen and her nephew Morty Shapiro (Linda).

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in her memory to Jewish Family Services or the Southern Poverty Law Center.

    Ann and Stan are back together again. Ann was an amazing woman. I had many experiences with her in some of her collecting quests. She never did anything halfway. It was all or nothing for Ann. The picture of her gardening in the Lily ponds at Longwood Gardens will be something I will always remember. May she rest in peace.

    To the Rosens, I send my sympathy on the loss of mother and grandmother. Dr. Rosen, I noted that you lost both your parents within a short time. They must’ve loved each other very much.

    Joe and I lived next door to Ann and Stan in the Ponds of Woodward. Ann was a very happy energized fun neighbor. She offered us many gardening tips and we enjoyed many dinners together. We will always remember her friendly smile. Rest in peace.
