Gainesville native among those killed in 9/11 attacks

By Ken Stanford Reporter
GAINESVILLE - A Gainesville native was among the victims of the terrorist attacks eleven years ago today.

Edna Stephens worked at the Pentagon and was at work when one of the hijacked planes slammed into the military complex not long after planes struck the World Trade Center's Twin Towers in New York.

Last year, on the tenth anniversary of the attacks, some of Stephens' relatives gathered at Fair Street Elementary School in Gainesville to remember their loved one and share their story with the students there.

That event was covered by AccessNorthGa.com's B.J. Williams and her story can be accessed via the link below.
