By on February 4, 2015

Kristin Nicole (Sceski) MacFarland, 27, of Ephrata, was called home by the Lord on Jan. 30, 2015, after a long fight with Medullary Thyroid cancer.

Born in Lancaster, she was the daughter of William A. and Laurie (Veneski) Sceski of Lititz.

She was the beloved wife of three years to Jonathan MacFarland. “I always loved you. I always will. You were my wife. You were my friend. We have a love that will never end.”

Kristin was an inspiration to everyone she met, especially her family, friends, and fellow “Meddies” (medullary cancer survivors). Her many joys in life included cosmetology, a talent she utilized in her job as a hairstylist for SuperCuts; cooking, drawing, painting, photography, and writing on her personal blog. She had a love for all animals and felt most at peace when she was in nature. Kristin will be loved and missed by so many.

In addition to her loving husband and parents, Kristin is survived by her brother: Jason Sceski and his wife Ronice of Lebanon; a niece: McCartney Sceski of Lebanon; sister: Kelli Metzler and her husband Jeff of Lititz; maternal grandfather: Martin “Dzia-Dzia” Veneski of Shamokin; paternal grandmother: Eileen “Nanny” Sceski of Elysburg; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather: Alfred “Pappy” Sceski; and her maternal grandmother: Christine “Busha” Veneski.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Wednesday, Feb. 4, at 11 a.m. at St. James Catholic Church, 505 Woodcrest Ave., Lititz with the Rev. Alfred Sceski as celebrant and the Rev. James O’Blaney as co-celebrant. Burial will be in Witness Park Cemetery.

Memorial contributions in Kristin’s memory may be made to Thyroid Cancer Survivor’s Association at or to the Humane League of Lancaster County, 2195 Lincoln Highway East, Lancaster, PA 17602.

To place a condolence online, visit Charles F. Snyder Jr. Funeral Home & Crematory, Lititz, handled the arrangements.
