Scarlett Stephenie Sweeney February 4, 2015 – June 22, 2021

Celebration of Life

Scarlett Stephenie Sweeney was born Feb. 4, 2015 to Cassandra and Jonathan Sweeney. On June 22 she passed from her life here and is now dancing and playing, breathing heavenly air.

She lived her whole life in Tehachapi. In her short little life, Scarlett touched the lives of many people across the country with her journey of living with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. Scarlett was a medically complex kiddo with a tremendous amount of hardships but brought joy to everyone. Her smile would light up the room and she was always a happy girl.

She is survived by her siblings, Alaina Mae Sweeney, Hannah Elizabeth Sweeney and Sean Michael Sweeney; parents, Cassandra Mae Sweeney and Jonathan Hal Sweeney; and grandparents, Sherry and Dan Sweeney.

A Celebration of Life Service was held on July 9 at Wood Family Funeral Service Chapel. We asked that people wore colors, no black. We were not mourning, but instead we celebrated a beautiful life. In lieu of flowers, we asked for children's toys that we later donated to the Los Angeles Children's Hospital.

Wood Family Funeral Home has been entrusted with her care. For condolences, please visit http://www.woodmortuary.net.
