Ruby The Riveter: E’Town Woman’s Story Makes Its Way Into History Book


Ruby Mortensen never thought she would find her name in a book. She wasn't sure anything she'd done would make a good story.
But the staff at Atria Assisted Living in Elizabethtown thought differently.

When the Atria group decided to write a book honoring the women who worked on the home front during World War II, Mortensen's tales from her factory job earned her a place in "Memories of the Home Front", a 208-page book featuring hundreds of stories from "Rosie the Riveter."
Mortensen was one of Elizabethtown's "Rosies," working as a seamstress in the T & W factory on College Street. During the war, the plant manufactured khaki pants for military uniforms.
She would start her day at 7 a.m., taking her place behind one of the sewing machines that sat in rows filling the center room of the factory.

In front of her would be bundles of khaki pants, with open back pockets.


Women's careers in society go a long way lifting it up. offers them even more chances with their very own niche to post resumes and find the right and fitting jobs
