Penny and I at the Moclips, Washington book signing in September of 2017.
It is my deepest regret to announce that we have lost Penny, (Priscilla Dean Messinger) the Rosie the Riveter subject of my book. She recently passed at the age of 96. I was told she loved me and always kept the book by her side.
I attended her Memorial and was honored to speak about her. She was honored with a Flag Folding Ceremony and Honor Guard. She was true patriot.
