The woman who inspired the famous World War II "Rosie the Riveter" poster has died at the age of 96, CNN reported Tuesday.

The New York Times obituary says that Naomi Parker was born August 26, 1921, the third of eight children.

In that article, James J. Kimble, an associate professor of communication and the arts at Seton Hall University in New Jersey, identified her as the model for the Rosie the Riveter poster based on his research. Then in February 1943, Westinghouse distributed the now-iconic poster created by J. Howard Miller of a woman flexing her bicep saying, "We Can Do It!" across factories, which were used to prevent employee absenteeism and strikes.

Fraley was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Fraley, who appeared in People magazine in 2016 when her connection to Rosie first became public, said she never wanted fame or fortune.

"A photographer happened to be going through and taking pictures, and he glommed on to her", said Marnie Blankenship, Fraley's daughter-in-law.

Fraley saw the original photo of herself, believed to have inspired the poster, at a convention for women who worked in the war.

Federal Bureau of Investigation director threatened to resign amid Trump, Sessions pressure
Generally, Wray has sought to avoid the drama and personal confrontations that sometimes flare up inside the Trump administration. Such a move, in the aftermath of public criticism from the president and others, could prompt litigation.

The poster's image was long credited as being Geraldine Hoff Doyle, a MI woman, after her name mistakenly appeared on the newspaper photograph.

In an obituary published Monday on the website of the New York Times, the confusion over Rosie's identity stems partly from the fact that the name Rosie the Riveter has been applied to more than one cultural artifact. She married and had a family.

The two met in 2015 and she produced her copy of the photo from a newspaper clipping that she had saved.

"I'm thankful that she finally got the notoriety that she deserves". "Whatever the world threw at her, she'd just bounced back". "She did it, and she always did it on her own".

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee called Fraley a "unique and special Washingtonian".

Rosie the Riveter represented the women who took over men's work during the war, filling factories and shipyards. "Trudi and I are holding her family and friends in our hearts".
