Barbara G. Vander Baan Edwards
Birth: Apr. 5, 1943, Germany
Death: Sep. 11, 2001
Arlington County
Virginia, USA

Palo Verde High School teacher Barbara Edwards was killed on September 11, 2001. The language teacher was one of 64 passengers and crew aboard hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 from Dulles International Airport that crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia.
Edwards attended a wedding in Connecticut, visited her son in New Jersey and visited the farm of Darlene and Bud Flagg in Millwood, Virginia. She was returning to Las Vegas and was with Darlene and Bud when the plane was hijacked.
Edwards was born in Germany and moved to Michigan when she was 10 years old. She lived in Bloomington, Indiana and graduated from Western Michigan University. She taught French and German at Palo Verde and Clark County Community College.
On September 11, 2003 a memorial was dedicated at the southeast corner of the soccer field. A flag was raised by the Air Force ROTC unit that had flown over both the US Capital and Pentagon. The flag was given to the Edwards family. Hand prints in the memorial signify the lives that Edwards touched. A foreign language scholarship has also been dedicated in her honor.
Edwards is survived by her sons, Doug Edwards of New Jersey, Captain Scott Edwards, a Marine Pilot and Mike Edwards who is in the Marines. She is also survived by her sister, Jane Gollan of Bothell, Washington; her parents Jack and Lissy Vander Baan both of Michigan, and two grandchildren.
