Scarlett Stephenie Sweeney, Feb. 4, 2015 - June 22, 2021

Scarlett Stephenie Sweeney was born Feb. 4, 2015, to Cassandra and Jonathan Sweeney. On June 22, 2021, she passed from her life here and is now dancing and playing, breathing heavenly air.

She lived her whole life in Tehachapi, Calif. 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 will be held on Friday, July 9, 2021, from 4 to 6 p.m., at Wood Family Funeral Service Chapel, 321 W. F St., Tehachapi, California, 93561.
