Model for Iconic "Rosie the Riveter" Poster Passes Away

The Lansing (MI) State Journal reports that the model for the iconic "Rosie the Riveter" poster Geraldine Doyle has passed away at the age of 86. This image was the inspiration for this year's exclusive HLCCA Fiesta juice pitcher, commemorating the year 1942. Thanks go to Holly Wolf for alerting us to Geraldine's passing.
