Flower of the Forest

Karen Elizabeth Hagerty

1967 - 2001

Karen Elizabeth Hagerty was born June 9, 1967.  She departed her short 34 years of life on September 11, 2001, in the wake of the terrorist attack on New York City's World Trade Center.  Karen was the daughter of Linzee Whittaker and his wife Lena.

Karen was in her office on the 105th floor of the World Trade Tower #2 when the first plane crashed into the World Trade Tower #1. She and her colleagues immediately started the evacuation of their building and were at the 78th floor awaiting the express elevator when the second plane struck their WTC Tower #2 causing it to eventually collapse. One of Karen's colleagues who had been with her on the 78th floor, managed to survive, and revealed to Karen's parents that Karen died upon the impact of the second plane into Tower #2.

There will be a memorial service for Karen Elizabeth Hagerty on Wednesday, September 19, 2001 at 1100 a.m. at St. John's Episcopal Church, Lattingtown, Long Island, New York.

Karen will without doubt be sorely missed by her family and many friends. On behalf of all Lindsays around the world, we offer our heart felt sympathy to Linzee and his wife Lena and their extended family.

On September 19, 2001 at 1100 a.m. EDST, pause and say a prayer for Karen Elizabeth Hagerty and the family members she left behind. May God bless and comfort the family of Karen at their time of great sorrow.


For those who are not aware, Linzee Whittaker is the President of The Linzee Family Association of America and grandson of John William Linzee, Jr. who authored the Linzee family chronicles in 1917.
