Obituary for Rebecca "Becky" Sweeney

April 17, 1978 - December 8, 2018
McHenry, Illinois | Age 40


Rebecca joined her heavenly family the afternoon of Saturday, December 8, 2018. Becky was born in Aurora, IL and grew up in McHenry, IL. She attended McHenry Community High School-West Campus, and over time began to manage her own cleaning company. Becky will be remembered for her loving, caring, compassionate nature and sense of humor. Many are grateful to have been able to get to know her even better in the last few years. Becky has touched so many lives, to know her was to love her. She was the person in the room whom you would meet once and never forget. She is loved by so many and through them she will never be forgotten. Her family and friends will miss Becky greatly and love her forever. Becky lived life just as her favorite quote said, "Live-Love-Laugh". We are blessed to have had you with us even for such a short time. We love you Becky.
