Eileen Sweeney Obituary
Sweeney, Eileen Died on September 7, 2018, just a few months before her 82nd birthday. She was preceded in death by her parents, Michael and Mary Sweeney, and her twin sister, Maureen Cain. Eileen was a great sister to Kathleen Martin (late Robert), Michael Sweeney (Darlene), Nancy Sweeney and Patricia Fisher. She was a wonderful aunt to 9 nieces and nephews, and great-aunt to 18 cherished great-nieces and nephews. Eileen will be remembered by many for her warmth and generous spirit. She was adventurous, a world traveler, who loved Chicago's cultural life, especially theater. She was an avid reader, and loved to shop. Illness stopped her weekly trips the Loop but QVC became a new passion. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, September 22, 2018 at St. Gertrude Church (on Granville and Glenwood in Chicago) at 11:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Misericordia Homes, 6300 N. Ridge, 60660 or St. Jude Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Be at peace, Eileen. You will be missed!
