Obituary for Virgie Lee Chambers Sweeney

Virgie Lee Chambers Sweeney died peacefully June 7, 2012, at McLaren Hospital in Pontiac. She was 71 years old. Virgie was born April 21, 1941, in Weaverville, North Carolina, to Janie Mae (nee Ford) and James Chambers and attended public school in Asheville, North Carolina.

Virgie moved to Michigan with her family in the early 1960�s, and worked as an assembler with General Motors. She also spent years as a household assistant to the Lynch Families of Birmingham and Bloomfield Hills. She united in marriage to Henry Clay Sweeney on April 10, 2004. Virgie united with the Lake Street Church of God where she accepted Christ and was baptized under the leadership of Reverend Alfred Carrothers and remained a member until her death. Virgie was a member of the Elks Crystal Temple for many years.

A devoted and loving sister, aunt, and friend, Virgie will be remembered best for her wild sense of humor, her love for family and friends, her endurance through suffering, and her deep faith in the goodness of God. If you knew Virgie, you loved her. She will be sorely missed.

Virgie is survived by her siblings, Willie Mae Chambers, Nancy (Marriscella) Jackson, Steven Chambers, Ethel (Kenneth) Jones, and Howard (Joyce) Chambers, and was cherished by a host of nieces and nephews, especially Lisa Jackson. Virgie was preceded in death by the late James (Willie Ann) Chambers, Jr., the late Mable Chambers, and the late Jimmy (Carolyn Ann) Chambers.
