Martha Heil (Orr) (1963)

How can any camper forget Jan riding Dawn? When she started at Wingfoot in 1956 she was a top stable hand. Through the years she developed into a very talented riding instructor who helped solidify a strong Wingfoot riding program. It was through her guidance, patience and talent that so many learned to love riding. When she moved on to be the program coordinator for the camp she carried with her all those wonderful attibutes. I remember being her shadow in 1956 (when I was seven and in the Cottage.) After my "shadow" years, she became a mentor and second mom. Over our many years at camp we became good friends. It's hard to realize that she is gone. She was larger than life. Along with Mom, they became the backbone and heart of Wingfoot.
