Honoring 9/11 Victim - Barbara G Edwards

Barbara G Edwards

Age: 58
Place of Residence: Las Vegas, NV

Barbara Edwards was taken from us on September 11, 2001 when the plane she was in - American Airlines flight 77 - flew into the Pentagon. She was traveling that day with two of her good friends, Darlene "Dee" Flagg and Wilson "Bud" Flagg who were also taken in the tragedy.

Mrs. Edwards, as she was known to her students, was a high school teacher. She taught German and French language classes at Palo Verde High school. She had recently begun sharing her German classes with students at the Community College of Southern Nevada.

Warm memories of time with her are still being shared across the internet and on her guest book. Barbara is portrayed in these outpouring by friends and family as a positive and upbeat person that did her best to share those feelings with those around her. She is clearly missed as a teacher and as a caring individual that many could trust and depend upon.

A scholarship program to remember Barbara Edward's contributions to the world was established to benefit students studying German. It pays for tuition, books, and an undetermined one-month immersion program in a German-speaking country for the recipient(s).
