BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont woman who lost a son in the 9/11 attacks and later established a foundation to promote education in Afghanistan has died.

Sarah "Sally" Goodrich died Saturday at her home in Bennington of cancer. She was 65. E.P. Mahar and Son Funeral Home in Bennington confirmed her death to The Associated Press.

Her son was aboard one of the planes that hit the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, and she and her husband, Donald, later established the Peter M. Goodrich Memorial Foundation.

The foundation has built two schools and a water reservoir in Afghanistan. It also helps children in other ways and supports exchange students.

Rick Derby, who produced a film about Goodrich, tells the Bennington Banner it's rare to meet someone who can "take you somewhere where your humanity lives."
