Allegheny County

Wayne County
West Virginia, USA

Elaine Lois Heath, the daughter of Guyan I. and Anna Keyser, was born in 1927 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing in Philadelphia. She was the president of the Midas Muffler Company of Huntington. She was 42 when she and her husband, Emmett, died, leaving four children: Kevin Andrew, Geoffrey Allen, Kathleene, and Holly Anne.

On a rainy hill side in Wayne County, West Virginia, the lives of 75 people were lost in the worst single air tragedy in NCAA sports history. Among the losses were nearly the entire Marshall University football team, coaches, flight crew, numerous fans, and supporters. The event marked a boundary by which an entire community would forever measure time... before or after "The Crash". This site is a memorial to the lives that were lost on that evening; to honor those men and women who made a mark in the hearts of a school, a community and a nation.
