(Longview, WA)  --  Friends and family are remembering the Longview, Washington woman who inspired the iconic "Rosie the Riveter" image.  Dozens gathered over the weekend for a memorial in honor of Naomi Parker Fraley.  She died in January at her Longview home.  Fraley's son Joe Blankenship tells KATU that the iconic quote "We can do it" was one of his mother's mottos, and that she didn't believe in the word "can't."  Fraley was working in a factory at Alameda Naval Air Station during World War Two when a photographer happened to take several photos of her, leading to the inspiration for the iconic image.
