Sara Sullivan Oglesby Obituary
Oglesby, Sara Sullivan December 3, 1932 – May 4, 20 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sara Sullivan Oglesby of Falls Church, Virginia. Sara was a longtime resident of the Washington, D.C. area and a graduate of Washington & Lee High School in Arlington, Virginia. She was born in Queens, New York in 1932 and was married to Philip L. Oglesby, who predeceased her. Together with Philip, Sara raised four children at her home in Falls Church. She is survived by children Elizabeth Sheldon of Waterford, Virginia, Philip Oglesby of Richmond, Virginia, Eric Oglesby of Fort Worth, Texas and Michael Oglesby of Scotts Valley, California. She is also survived by her eight grandchildren, one great grandchild and her dog Tita, who will live out her remaining dog years with Sara's daughter Elizabeth. Sara retired from the federal government some years ago where she worked for both the Office of Personnel Management in the Pentagon and the Judge Advocate General Corps. Throughout her life, Sara always supported her family with encouragement and kind words and had a positive attitude on life. She lived with her beloved dog Tita in her home in Falls Church until her death. All of her children were fortunate to have a final opportunity to visit with Sara immediately prior to her passing. She passed peacefully in her sleep following visits from her family from all over the country. Her final evening on earth was spent smiling and sipping a milkshake (one of her favorite treats) with her family. Sara, you will always be loved and cherished and we all will miss you dearly. Your departure leaves a hole in all of our hearts but we are also filled with the joy of having known you as a mother, a grandmother and a friend during your time on earth.
