One of my favorite people that I’ve never met, Elinor Otto, celebrated her 94th birthday last Saturday, while at the same time, on the other side of the country, we were meeting and talking with real Willow Run Rosies at the Arsenal of Democracy Conference and Willow Run Open House.
Mrs. Otto has been recently featured in the national media, and America just can’t seem to get enough of her. Talk about riveting!
At her birthday party, she was feted by family, friends new and old, and a 93-year-old Tuskegee airman. Yes, I said Tuskegee airman! Rosies from all over America called to wish her a happy birthday.
Can’t beat that, can you? Happy Birthday, Elinor Otto!
