Edwina Stephens Honored at Smith Williams Center

September 21, 2012 by Julie Montanaro

They say home is where the heart is. For Edwina Stephens, it stretched well beyond the front door.

She was honored at a reception Friday night at the Smith-Williams Center in Tallahassee.

We got a sneak peek at a memorial wall that was unveiled tonight.

It features Stephen's smiling face and just a few of the dozens of awards she's won for advocating on behalf of neighborhoods ... especially her beloved Bond community.

Stephens died in a car accident earlier this year.

"She poured herself out to this community, particularly to the Bond community, to Nims Middle school and to the southside and really to the city at large," her son Charles Stephens said.

Stephens' children came from out of town for the celebration.

The memorial wall is right outside the computer center where Stephens took "senior computer classes."

There will be a community flea market and bazaar Saturday from 9am-3pm.
