Wolf, Natalie


Natalie Wolf was born and raised Jewish in New York City. She met her husband Rowland (Ron), also a New York native, on a blind date. They married in 1959 and settled into raising a family. Two of their three sons, Mitch, Kelly and Jamie, were also born in New York. They were ages 6 and 3 when the family moved to their new home on the desert in 1971. Unwillingly to move without a job, Natalie and her husband Ron were receptive to her sister Rita Park’s suggestion that the couple join her in the management of the Greyhound Bus Station. The Wolfs soon packed the car, loaded up their sons and drove across country from New York City to Las Vegas. They would operate the Greyhound franchise until 1979.

Wolf also worked in Vegas casinos.
