Historical Notes Born in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, Laura Lee Morabito lived in Framingham, Massachusetts, with her husband, Mark. She was a fan of Barry Manilow’s music, and her family all knew her quirk of letting ice cream melt so it was drinkable. On September 11, Laura Lee, a national sales manager for Qantas Airways, boarded Flight 11 to attend a business meeting in California. She was 34 years old.
