Amy Rae Winans, who was the executive director for Broome County Habitat for Humanity, has died. She was 45.

Winans joined the local Habitat for Humanity unit in March 2006. The organization helps build homes as part of a global mission to help people "build or improve a place they can call home."

Winans died October 8 at her home in West Endicott. She is survived by her husband and a daughter.

In interviews with WNBF News in recent years, Winans expressed satisfaction with the efforts of Habitat for Humanity, its volunteers and supporters to help many families and individuals in the Binghamton area.

Visitation will be Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. at J.A. McCormack Sons Funeral Home at 141 Main Street in Binghamton. A religious service honoring her life will be announced at a future date.
