Sweeney, Betty J. Armstrong  
Betty J. Armstrong Sweeney July 21, 1934 - June 3, 2016 SOUTH BEND - Betty Jean Armstrong Sweeney, 81, passed away peacefully and unexpectedly in her sleep on June, 3, 2016, at her home in South Bend, IN. She was the beloved wife and best friend of Robert Sweeney MD for almost 59 years, mother and mother-in-law to six children and their spouses, grandmother to fourteen grandchildren, sister, aunt, supportive friend, and active community member. She was born July 21, 1934, in Muncie, IN, to Kelly and Velma Armstrong, the older of two girls. She lived in Ireland, IN, until she went to college. She was the first and only family member to earn her four-year degree, Bachelor of Science in Education from Indiana State Teachers College. She met Bob on a blind date and they married on June 15, 1957. She taught home economics, eventually transitioning her job into the home to care for her active children. Once most of her children had left home, she fulfilled a longtime dream of becoming a small business owner of a gift shop. She eventually retired to be a full-time volunteer, gardener and grandmother. Her life was as beautiful, colorful and full as the flowers she loved and tended so well. She was an active church member and volunteer. She was a Boy Scout mother who could lay down the law and was affectionately known by many on the Explorer trips as “Mean Betty Jean.” She had a wonderful way of making everyone feel special. She made time for others and was happy to lend a hand regardless of how busy she was. She was full of surprises and you never knew exactly what she was going to say, but often needed to hear it anyway. Her influence will forever remain in the lives of all who knew her. She is survived by her husband, Robert Sweeney; six children and spouses: Robert and Kathy Sweeney, Kelly and Alma Sweeney, Kathy and John Robert Hutchinson, Kevin and Suzie Sweeney, Meg Sweeney and Rick Foley, Elizabeth Sweeney and Ben Rice; fourteen grandchildren: Jill Sweeney, Meghan Sweeney, Elissa Sweeney, Jon Sweeney, Kaitlin Hutchinson, Maclin Sweeney, Breanna Hutchinson, Shawn Hutchinson, Shannon Hutchinson, Emma Foley, Katie Sweeney, Owen Foley, Elly Sweeney, and Magdalena Rice; and a sister, Phyllis Thornbury and her family. A celebration of life will be held at Sunnyside Presbyterian Church, 115 S. Frances in South Bend, IN, on Thursday, June 30, 2016. Visitation is from 1-4 with a celebration of life ceremony to follow. Please join us in honoring our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Arrangements were made at the Hahn Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Sunnyside Presbyterian Church.
