Sheena Marie Kuntz Hackett

September 3, 2018 Landenberg, PA Loving Daughter, Sister, Granddaughter, Niece and Aunt

Sheena Marie Kuntz Hackett, age 34 of Landenberg, PA, passed away September 3, 2018. Sheena was living with her parents in temporary housing in Greenville, DE while their house was being rebuilt due to a fire.

A longtime resident of Kennett Square, PA, Sheena was an incredibly talented and creative young lady. She loved arts and crafts, particularly drawing and she wrote beautiful poems and stories. Sheena loved spending time with her cousins, friends and family – especially at the family’s summer cottage on the Susquehanna River.

Sheena’s brother, Cody Kuntz, would like to share the following about his beloved sister:

“My sister lived in her own world, somewhere between the flowers and the stars. With a free spirit and mind as open as the ocean she kept a full heart and a smile upon her face through years of constant pain and suffering. She fought so hard and for so long that we can at least take solace in the fact that her fight is now finally over. And though when people die they take a piece of us with them I can rest easy knowing I will always have her memory to help grant me strength. You will be sorrowfully missed Sheena Marie, but not with frowns and tearful eyes but with warmth and laughter. I will love you forever and never forget you, not one day…”

Sheena was sadly predeceased by her baby, Lennon Stone Martin. She is survived by her parents, Patrick and Lisa Kuntz; her brother, Cody Kuntz; her grandfather, Joseph Engart; her aunts, Renee Mills, Lana Cornett, and Leslie McGuire; her uncle, Joseph Engart III and her niece, Eisley Fallon Kuntz.

Relatives and friends are invited to visit with Sheena’s family from 11:00AM to 1:00PM on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at Kuzo & Grieco Funeral Home, 250 West State Street, Kennett Square, PA 19348. A Celebration of Sheena’s Life will follow at 1:00PM. Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, Sheena’s wishes would have been to donate to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. Donations may be mailed in Sheena’s honor to the JDRF’s Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter, 555 Croton Road, Suite 111, King of Prussia, PA, 19406.

  7. Sheena and I bonded over loss and found a way to comfort each other despite our differences. She gave light even when she had little to spare and saw the best in all situations. I am thankful for getting to know her these past few years. Thoughts, prayers and healing vibes for the hearts of her family and friends.

  9. ” I’m so sorry for your loss. Sheena always had a light about her that will be sorely missed. She has had a horrible disease that many people would not be able to handle it as well as her. I want to say SHAME to the Drs for not curing J.D. sooner. I and many other people will miss this beautiful woman who’s life was cut off as soon as it started. My memories of her will always have a place in my heart. Rest in Peace Sheena. Suffer no more.

  11. Sheena was a very nice child when I taught her at Mary D. Lang School. She had a very supportive family. It was heartwarming to know that they cared so much. After having read what Cody wrote about Sheeena, I know that she was surrounded not only by loving parents, but also a loving brother. His devotion to her was remarkable. She was blessed. She did not die alone.
    May she Rest In Peace.
    My deepest heartfelt sympathy is sent to you.
    With love,
    Sharon McMahon Journey

  13. I followed Sheena closely on Facebook.. no matter where she was or what she was experiencing she always had a positive attitude about it.. she was a very strong girl who had to deal with alot but was always willing to educate people about her diagnoses so they can learn from it.. with just becoming a nurse she had taught me a lot.. .i’ll miss her posts on Facebook.. she was an inspiration to many! #Praying

  16. Lisa & family, I’m at a loss for words. I’m so sorry for the loss of Sheena. It’s so hard to believe, she’s been giving it all she had. I know you all are devastated but working with her, I got to know Sheena very well. She loved her family more than anything in this world. Even though we lost touch, I thought of her always.
