Rosie is dead

Geraldine Hoff Doyle, the inspiration for "Rosie the Riveter," died on Sunday at the age of 86 due to complications from arthritis, the Washington Post reports.
Rosie became the symbol for all the female workers who worked in the war effort.
I am not 100% sure but I think our aunt Betty was one of the Rosie the Riveter crowd while uncle Chuck was in the service and she lived on the west coast.

Aunt Winnie would have been considered part of that group when she was working at McDonnell Aircraft
