Another Woman Claiming to be the REAL “Rosie the Riveter” Passes Away
Mary Doyle Keefe, the lady who says she was the inspiration for the famous WW2 icon "Rosie the Riveter" is gone at the age of 92.
BUT! Back in 2010, another lady whose face was used as Rosie passed away at the age of 86 - her name was Geraldine Hoff Doyle.
So how many women claim to be the inspiration for Rosie? Many, many women...even some women whose real names were 'Rosie'...like Rosina Bonavita, whose story you can read HERE.

So evidently, there is no one specific person who can claim to be the original, real "Rosie" that the painting was based on. So read the stories and enjoy 'em for what they are.
