The death of someone we care about can be one of the most difficult experiences of life. Words seem inadequate to describe how painful the grief we feel can be. Charles Sweeny left Lunenburg in 1917 for Bridgewater, called the "Main street of the South Shore". It suffered a disastrous fire in January 1899 and, one month later, the community came together as an incorporated town.

Charles Sweeny took over from R.C. Durling, undertaker and carriage shop proprietor. A son, Heber M., was born to the Sweeny couple in Lunenburg in 1894. He assumed control of the C.F. Sweeny Funeral Home in Bridgewater from his dad and died in 1968 at the age of seventy-four years. Heber was a former mayor of Bridgewater, serving for six years from 1936 to 1942.

He was an ardent sportsman racehorse owner, and driver, and was prominent on the Maritime harness racing circuit. For many years, he attended the annual horse sale in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and he brought more than one hundred race horses to Nova Scotia in the period he was connected with racing. He owned and operated his own race track in Bridgewater for about ten years.

His wife Mildred and son Charles survived him. She continued to be active in the business until her death in 1987 at the age of ninety-three. On January 1, 2013 the operations of the funeral home were taken over by long time employee and manager of the company, Adam Tipert, a native of New Germany. Adam has been the Directing Manager of the former New Germany Funeral Home since its creation in 1991.

Sweeny"s purchased this branch office in August 2002, bringing Adam into the staff of the family run Sweeny Funeral Homes. Adam, a licensed funeral director and embalmer along with the licensed and administration staff continue to maintain the same respected family value orientated service as taught and handed down from generation to generation.
