Andrea Heinemann Simon (March 24, 1909 – February 15, 1994) was a community leader and the mother of award-winning singer Carly Simon.
Andrea Louise Heinemann was the second child of Frederick and Elma Heinemann and raised in Philadelphia. She was the daughter of a Spanish-born, Roman Catholic mother, Asuncion Maria del Rio, and a German-speaking Swiss father who abandoned the family. She also asserted she was of partial "Moorish" origin based on her mother's exotic looks.
Heinemann married Richard Leo Simon (March 6, 1899 – July 29, 1960), co-founder of Simon & Schuster, the publishers. At the time of their 1934 engagement, Heinemann worked as a receptionist for the company. They had four children:former opera Mezzo-soprano singer and New York real estate agent, Joanna Simon

The family resided in the Riverdale community of the Bronx. Heinemann was an activist in the Civil Rights Movement.
Simon was actively involved in charitable and community work. This included a stint on the board of directors of the Riverdale Mental Health Association for over 30 years. She also served as a director of the Riverdale Chapter of the United Nations Association.
In 1994, Simon died of lung cancer in her Riverdale home at the age of 84.
