03NR22 - Motorcyclists Mourn Loss of Kathleen Hunt Wolf

The motorcyclists' rights community lost another outstanding leader when Kathleen Hunt Wolf passed away from injuries resulting from an automobile accident in Italy earlier this week. Many Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) members had the distinct pleasure of meeting Kathleen when she participated in an EPA panel discussion at the MRF's Meeting of the Minds Conference in September, 2001. An expert on environmental policy, Kathleen was one of the key people who was instrumental in helping shape the MRF's stance on the EPA issue, and she provided a steady stream of information and support for the MRF thereafter.

Kathleen was incisive, brilliant, feisty and immensely supportive of the Motorcycle Riders Foundation. Tom Wyld, MRF Vice President of Government Relations, often described Kathleen in his speeches as a delight to speak to, listen to and just be around. "Kathleen was a true champion of motorcyclists' rights and safety, a dear personal friend of mine, and genuinely one of the leaders that comes to my mind when I use the expression Ride With The Leaders," said Wyld, adding, "Her loss is incalculable, and we will miss her deeply."

Memorial Services for Kathleen Hunt Wolf will be held on Saturday, July 5, 2003 at 10:00 a.m., St. Joseph's Church, 280 County Road, Demarest, New Jersey 07627 and on Saturday, July 19, 2003 at 11:00 a.m., Cable Airport, Foothill Aircraft, 1749 W. 13th Street, Upland, California 91786. In lieu of flowers, Kathleen would have liked to know that a small donation had been made to either of the following: Mark Madden Memorial Fund, EAA Chapter 448, 1749 W. 13th Street, Upland, CA 91786 or Kathleen H. Wolf Memorial Fund, Shoreham Elementary School, c/o: Elizabeth Christensen, P.O. Box 187, Shoreham, VT 05770.
