In Remembrance
Place of Residence:
Brooklyn, NY
Location on 9/11:
Cantor Fitzgerald | Assistant Bond Trader

She didn't have the usual mix of hobbies, but Catherine LoGuidice wouldn't have fit into easy categories anyway.

On weekends, she might be helping out a veterinarian or taking in a stray pet to go along with her four cats: Sylvester, Charlie, Se and Baby. Or she may very well be cranking up her favorite music, no less than the hard rock bands Led Zeppelin and the Black Crowes.

She liked tattoos. She had purple lilies across her lower back and a rose and sword on her ankle. And the Brooklyn resident worked in the heart of the New York financial center, as an assistant bond trader at Cantor Fitzgerald in the World Trade Center.

Ms. LoGuidice was on the 105th floor of the North Tower on the morning of Sept. 11 when the first hijacked airliner struck the building. She was 30 years old.

"She loved life, she loved it to the fullest," said Roseann Spirito, Ms. LoGuidice's sister and a resident of Brick Township. "She loved it more than any of us."

Ms. LoGuidice was to be married on Oct. 19 to Erick Elberth, a tug boat captain whom she knew from their days together at Canarsie High School. Her recent wedding shower was attended by several friends who also were lost in the terrorist attack, said her sister.

The youngest of four children, Ms. LoGuidice worked at Cantor Fitzgerald for eight or nine years and was in the same office when the World Trade Center suffered the bombing in 1993. "She made it through the last one, and didn't really think about it since," Spirito said.
