Sara S. Donnelly, a sales representative for the Beauty Counselors cosmetics company from the late 1950s to the early 1970s, died Feb. 25 at a hospice in Mount Airy, Md. She was 94.

The cause was cancer, said a friend, Joseph Rezash.

Sara Strong was born in Adamstown, Md., and raised in Washington, where she was a 1937 graduate of Roosevelt High School. She did secretarial work for the Navy Department during World War II.

She was a resident of Leisure World retirement community in Silver Spring and a past officer with the Wheaton Woods Citizens Association. She attended Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in Silver Spring.

Her husband of 58 years, Edward F. Donnelly, died in 2006. She had no immediate survivors.
