In Memory of Karen Lynn Seymour

Karen Lynn Seymour was 40 years old and from Millington, NJ.

On September 11, 2001, Karen was attending a financial technology seminar on the 106th floor in the North Tower of the World Trade Center. She was employed by the ETC division of Garban Intercapital, and regularly worked on the 25th floor of the building.

Karen's husband, William, made a huge decision to keep his wife's memory alive. He founded The Karen L. Seymour Fund at Liberty Science Center in Jersey City. Quoting William Dietrich "This will encourage greater global harmony by educating children and families of all backgrounds in the peaceful use of science and technology in the hope that future generations will be spared the pain and horror of this tragedy." His wish is that his children or no other children ever have to experience or witness the violence which occurred on September 11, 2001.

  1. Karen was in my high school class of 1978. I remember her as being athletic, tall, slim, quiet, and never said a negative word about anyone. I know she excelled in everything she attempted because it was not in her nature to do anything less than her best. I think of her often and hope her family has come to some semblance of normalcy after losing Karen. Her children, I hope, can get to know more about their mother through postings such as these. Karen was a wonderful person, never angry, always quiet and loved life. She was my friend in school and I'm sorry we lost touch over the years. I respectfully send good wishes to her family.
