AIKEN, SC - Mrs. Eloise T. Sweeney, age 98, widow of Woodrow Sweeney, Sr., 308 Whispering Pines Terrace, passed away, Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at Aiken Regional Medical Center.

Mrs. Sweeney was born October 28, 1916 in Salley, SC, the daughter of the late William and Annie Brown Tyler. She was educated at the Union Academy Primary School in Salley and received her secondary and college level education at Bettis Academy in Trenton, SC. A gourmet cook of the highest order, she made her living as a Domestic Engineer in the Aiken, SC area. She was a dedicated, lifelong member of Sardis Missionary Baptist Church and was the Mother of the Church. At Sardis, she was a member of the Senior Choir and also worked on the Kitchen Committee for years.
She was a woman of intense dignity and purpose and did not hesitate to make people aware of who she was and what she stood for. One of her favorite sayings was: "It's a poor frog that won't praise her own pond." She loved people and one of her favorite scriptures was "Love ye one another as I loved you." John 13:34. And then she would add "He wasn't joking either."
