Beth A. Quigley, 25, of New York City and Lincroft, NJ, was taken from her family and her many friends in the senseless terrorist tragedy of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center in New York City.

Beth enjoyed participating in many activities and sports. During her early years she focused on music and the theater, playing piano, dancing, and acting. In her late grammar school years, Beth played softball and soccer in the Lincroft Little League, and was a cheerleader for St. Leo the Great School, all while developing strong study and work ethics.

During high school, Beth volunteered in the community, diversified into student government and journalism, became keenly interested in Spanish language and culture, was elected to the National Honor Society in her junior year, was selected to be co-captain of the cheerleading squad, and enjoyed parties, skiing and various water sports with her friends. Throughout high school Beth also always held part-time jobs for several hours a week.

At College of the Holy Cross, Beth double majored in Economics and Spanish. Her freshman year roommate, Lukie Jovel, became BethBs close friend and remained her roommate until September 11. Her unquenchable thirst for knowledge and adventure led Beth to spend her junior year in Spain. While at the University of Seville in Seville, Spain, she immersed herself in the culture, specialized in Spanish literature and culture, became fluent in the language, and traveled extensively throughout Europe. BethBs interests in economics and finance continued to pique her curiosity, leading her to the financial field. The first semester of senior year afforded Beth the opportunity to be interviewed on campus, which led to her being offered a position by Cantor Fitzgerald in New York CityBs World Trade Center.

BethBs career began in November 1997. Following completion of an intensive training program during which she earned several securities licenses, Beth was assigned in April 1998 as an Assistant Trader of NASDAQ/OTC stocks on Floor 104 of One World Trade Center. She enjoyed the dynamic marketplace and daily challenges, and humbly appreciated that she had professional growth opportunities that many of her peers did not have with some other securities firms. Although Beth was very happy with her position at Cantor Fitzgerald, she knew that continuing formal education was critical to her long-term success. She began the part-time MBA program at New York University's Stern School of Business in the weeks prior to September 11.

Beth balanced work and play extremely well. She loved life and always had a smile for all who greeted her. Beth would usually be the first person to get her friends together for a good time, whether it be a party, a ski trip or shopping trip, or just to meet for dinner. She enjoyed all that life had to offer.

Surviving are her parents, Louella and Gene Quigley; her sister, Suzanne Quigley; her maternal grandmother, Mrs. Irma Lucas; an especially dear friend, Ivan Gonzalez; her long time roommate and close friend, Lukie Jovel; her special friend, Susanne Higgins who also shared her year in Spain and throughout Europe; and many relatives and scores of other friends from all stages of her life.
