Many of you may have noticed on the national news last month that the woman believed to be the inspiration for the iconic Rosie the Riveter poster died at age 96. One of our shareholders, Christopher Martella, is proud of the fact that his grandmother was also an original “Rosie,” one of millions of women that entered the U.S. workforce during World War II. Martella’s grandmother, Helen Martella (Mart), worked at the Willow Run Assembly Plant on the B-24’s engines. Helen Martella passed away in August of 2017 at age 97.
