Ann Nicole Nelson

Wayland Academy in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, dedicated a bench in front of the school's library as a memorial to Ann Nelson in a ceremony on Oct. 11, [year unknown]. Ann was a class of 1989 alumna, and worked at the World Trade Center on the 104th floor as a bond broker for Cantor Fitzgerald. The bench reads: “In Memory of Ann Nicole Nelson ’89 WTC Victim 09-11-01.” Each year on the anniversary, flowers are placed on the bench to commemorate her life. “Every year a bouquet of flowers is left on the bench before anyone else shows up at the school,” Sue Voigt, director of public information and publications for Wayland, said to Terri Pederson, a staff writer for the Beaver Dam Daily Citizen. “Somebody must know how they get there, but I have no idea. It's a mystery to many people.”
