Sarah M. Cunningham, 47, of Beverly, died Aug. 15.

Funeral services were held Aug. 22 from Donnellan Funeral Home to St. Barnabas Roman Catholic Church. Private interment followed.

She is survived by her mother, Maria; her siblings, Jesse and Maria Cunningham; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Cunningham worked for many publishing companies throughout her career. She was an obsessive White Sox fan, like her late father, Dick. She was an unending student of humanity and the planet. Her thirst to know, to share, to understand and her thirst for justice brought a special beauty to our world.
