Our friend Eve DeCoursey

Eve DeCoursey, former WABA employee and friend of FABB, passed away on November 24. She had ovarian cancer. We first met Eve at a WABA Gala. She had been in touch with us to write an article about  Fairfax County for WABA's newsletter Ride On, which she edited.When we responded with text for the upcoming newsletter she gushed about how great the article was and how we did such a good job. That was Eve, always cheerful and encouraging of the efforts of others.

Even though we didn't know Eve for very long we felt like we knew her well and we considered her a good friend. When FABB applied for our first grant to purchase bike lights, she edited our application and gave us good advice that we use to this day.

It was only recently that we learned about her past accomplishments as an athlete, coach, and bike advocate. Read the WABA tribute to her, Celebrating the life of Eve DeCoursey, to learn more about her incredible life. Goodbye Eve, we miss you.

I interviewed Eve in Honolulu in November, 1996.
