In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, Domenick Mike Mazzocchi, and sisters: Jane Fillinger, Sally Godby, Shawnee Wall, and Nawasa Fillinger. Fossie Kay attended Chapmanville High School and in the early 40's moved to Baltimore, Maryland and worked in the shipyards — under the Emergency shipbuilding program that needed new sources of labor for the emergency yards to build ships. The popular symbolic figure "Rosie the Riveter" partly sprung from the wartime shipyards where a new cadre of female ship fitters suddenly developed. Fossie Kay worked at the Bethlehem Steel Shipyard at Sparrows Point, Md., and for Eastern Aircraft. Fossie Kay was a "Rosie the Riveter" Those family members left to cherish her memory include her two sons: Eugene Mike (Margitta) Mazzocchi of Chapmanville, and Angelo Lewis Mazzocchi of Houston, Texas; one daughter, Zendra Louise (Gary) Manley of Three Rivers, Mich.; and Fossie Kay's grandchildren: Derrick E.

(Karen) Mazzocchi of Osceola, Ind.; and great-grandchildren include Bjork Tara Mazzocchi, Natalie and Nicholas Love, and Domenick, Amber, and Ziah Mazzocchi. In addition are Fossie Kay's sister, Nevada Dillon of Chapmanville; two brothers: James Lewis (Mary Jane) Fillinger of Iowa, and Geronimo Fillinger of Hall Town, W.Va., and a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends… including one of her best and closest life long friends, Judy Shelton of Logan.
