Explained by Freeranger...

Sadly, I missed this. Naomi Parker Fraley. Ring a bell? We all knew her as "Rosie the Riveter". She passed away recently in January of this year. Naomi Fern Parker was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1921, as the third of eight children to Joseph Parker and Esther Leis. Her father was a mining engineer while her mother was a homemaker. The family moved across the country from New York to California, living in Alameda at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor. She and her younger sister Ada went to work at the Naval Air station, where they were assigned to the machine shop for aircraft assembling duties. After the war, Parker worked as a waitress at the Doll House, a restaurant in Palm Springs. She was married three times, first to Joseph Blankenship (divorced), second to John Muhlig, ended with his death in 1971, and third to Charles Fraley , whom she married in 1979. On January 20, 2018, Parker died in Longview, Washington at the age of 96. The following month, her life was celebrated on BBC Radio 4's obituary programme Last Word. Talk about an icon.

Very famous and insiring poster.
