DENVER — The 52-year-old widow of the man who captained a United Airlines flight that crashed into a Pennsylvania field after being taken over by terrorists on 9/11 has died of what her charity says was natural causes.

The Captain Jason M. Dahl Scholarship Fund says on its website that Sandy Dahl died near Denver, and family friend David Dosch tells the Denver Post (http://bit.ly/LqWMvk ) she passed away in her sleep. Her body was found Friday.

Dahl's husband was the captain of United Flight 93 on Sept. 11, 2001.

Dahl founded a scholarship fund in her husband's honor to provide funding for young pilots to receive their education.

Jefferson County coroner's officials have confirmed her death, but the exact cause has not been released.
