Some knew her as "Rosie." Others knew her as "The Lady In Red."
The woman in this picture is someone a lot of Martinez folks remember from the 1960s, and because she was mysterious, a lot of stories grew up around her.
Some say that she moved with her husband to Martinez and he then went off to war, or to sea, and never returned. In this version of the story, she waited for him to return every day, certain he would come back. And he never did.
There are other, less savory versions of Rosie's life.
She apparently was a very well-dressed woman who wore a lot of rouge and was always seen around town. One of her favorite spots was a bench outside of the Traveler's Hotel on Alhambra Avenue.
But many people remember her, are posting their memories on the Facebook page Remembering Martinez, and will no doubt share stories about her during this weekend's Remembering Martinez reunion.
