My Aunt Cassie was a Rivet Girl

Updated on March 5, 2012

My Aunt Cassie 1939

I feel like I am almost famous,key word ALMOST.

This is my Aunt Cassie, my Dad's sister, she was one of the Rosie the Riveter Girls.


There was a song named Rosie the Riveter in 1942,by Redd Evans and John Loeb.

All the day long,
Whether rain or shine
She’s part of the assembly line.
She’s making history,
Working for victory
Rosie the Riveter


In these wartime plants, they made planes and everything else for WWII. Men got paid 54.65$ per week, but women were paid 31.50$ per week. It is still a Man's world,sorry fellas,but the women back then were so patriotic, they still did all that anyway. Sounds like today, folks.


This is my favorite photo where she is sitting on that cords or something, see that smile? That is the Real Aunt Cassie..She and my Uncle Roger lived in Texas, and I as remember them, they were bigger than life. She was always smiling, and happy to goof off with us little kids. My cousins were wonderful to me also, and they didn't have to be.

She and Uncle Roger are not with us any more, but I hope somewhere up and through those branches of my Family Tree, that great and wonderful sap is flowing in my veins.
