Harriet Rosenberg

Harriet Rosenberg (nee Mondelblatt), aged 93, of Abington and Philadelphia, PA, passed away peacefully on September 12, 2021. She was the beloved wife of the late Harold Rosenberg, and is survived by her children, Iris (Kevin) Parker and Murray (Lorna) Rosenberg. Grandmother to Reid, Johanna, and Hilary Parker (Corley,) and David, Aryeh, and Judith Rosenberg; and Great-Grandmother to Noah and Micah Parker, Jordan and Juliana Majors, and Max Corley.
Harriet was born in South Philadelphia and raised as the only child of Fannie (nee Fogelman) and David Mondelblatt. She grew up in a loving home surrounded by her extended family. Sunday dinners and numerous family gatherings and lifecycle events caused Harriet to develop a strong focus on family, something she always cherished and ardently promoted throughout her life.
Harriet and Harold married in 1951 and purchased a home in Northeast Philadelphia where they lived for 40 years. She took great pride in her role as homemaker while Harold manufactured women's lingerie at his Garden Looms factory. She attended numerous school events that involved her children and grandchildren, bringing her great joy. Harriet and Harold relished spending time with their grandchildren and traveling. After Harold's death, Harriet continued this tradition by taking each of her grandchildren on a "big trip" after their Bar/Bat Mitzvah: Disney World, London and Paris, Alaska, Italy, and the Caribbean.
Harriet went back to work at the age of 50 for the School District of Philadelphia until her "early" retirement at the age of 82 1/2. She loved her administrative assistant position in the RITE/MERIT Program and the people she worked with each day. Harriet's co-workers, who included many nuns, teachers, and administrators, were a great source of love and support during her working years and in retirement.
Harriet lived independently until the end of April 2021. She enjoyed going to family gatherings, numerous educational and music programs, and Shabbat services. She was very generous, warm, and optimistic. She shared her winning smile with all whom she met. Please consider a donation in her memory to Adath Jeshurun Congregation, Sharing is Caring Fund at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel, or the American Diabetes Association.
