Mary Kristin  Sanctis

December 26, 1968 - April 11, 2020

Mary Kristin Sanctis

Age 51 of Cranberry Township passed away peacefully on Saturday April 11, 2020 surrounded by her loved ones. Kristin was born on December 26, 1968, daughter of Carole and the late Edmond M. Sanctis. Beloved sister of Terence, Michael (Cheryl), and Edmond (Shelli) Sanctis; loving aunt of
Ryan, Zachary, Lindsay, Wilson, Aaron, Dean and Julian. She is also survived by many loving friends who will miss her dearly.

Creative, strong-willed, and quick-witted, Kristin always put her family first, including her cherished dogs, Nico and Prima. Graduating from the University of Dayton in 1990, Kristin enjoyed a successful career in digital advertising and direct marketing and spent her last eight professional years
assisting non-profit organizations with their fundraising initiatives. Kristin enjoyed crafts and was an especially talented jewelry maker. She had a special place in heart for animals, and was blessed with a large and loyal circle of friends who provided her with immeasurable support and love during her four year battle with cancer. Kristin’s family is enormously grateful for their support.

Due to our Nation’s current pandemic, private Family services were held. A public gathering of family and friends to celebrate Kristin’s life will be held at a later date.

Because of Kristin’s love of animals, the family suggests donations may be made to Animal Friends, 562 Camp Horne Road, Pittsburgh, Pa. 15237.

Professional arrangements entrusted to Devlin Funeral Home of Cranberry.

    I am grateful for the time spent getting to know Kris and her family.
    She fought a mighty fight right up to the last days of her life. She used that spunk to get through many agonizing moments that cancer presented her with. She was a beautiful person and will be missed by so many.
    You are free at last my friend!

  • Heather Caldwell Sebetich

    Kristi was one of my closest friends at SSJ. Kristi and her family were so generous to me—often including me on many family outings. I still think of all of us girls sitting around the family room watching MTV—which back then was a paid channel! High school took us in different directions with only rare get-togethers, so I was thrilled to catch up with Kristi on FB years later. I’m sure that she will be deeply missed by all who knew her. My deepest condolences go out to her family at this time.

  • Peter Augusta

    Kristen holds a special place in my heart. She will be missed, but always remembered.

  • Tim Trant

    Dear Sanctis family and friends,
    My deepest condolences for the loss of Kristi. She was a beautiful person inside and out. I had the pleasure of becoming friends growing up in grade school and high school plus attended the Univ of Dayton together. She was a dear friend to so many during those years. God Bless.

  • Rachel & Andrew Hovanec

    Kristen will be forever missed. We will always remember our dates at the dog park we created and the wild fur baby birthday parties;)

  • Dave Nazworth

    Terribly sorry to hear of Kristi’s passing. We were next-door neighbors from 4 years old through 5th grade, and to this day I remember little things like playing behind the barricade, carpooling to elementary school in the old wood-panel Wagoneer, and sleeping on their couch the night my brother was born. I’m especially thankful Kristi and I were able to reconnect recently over social media. To Carole, Big Ed (RIP), Terry, Eddie, Aunt Shirley, and the rest of the Sanctis family, you’re in my thoughts. Dave

    To the Sanctis family and close friends, I graduated with Kristi from Canevin and had nothing but fond and fun memories of her. So sorry for your loss. Hugs and prayer to you all!

  • Rick Bubash

    Sorry to hear about this. Our classmates are too you young.

  • Alan & Dana Hyams

    Our deepest sympathy to Kristin’s family. We knew her as a friend and colleague and fellow animal lover. Her strong personality and kind heart will be missed.

  • Erin

    So sad for the loss of such a vibrant human being. You will be missed, Kristin.

  • Barbara Stewart

    Loving every single memory of you, Kris, and never forgetting such a beautiful person! Be happy forever!

  • Jay Good

    I am so sorry. I had the incredible good fortune of working with Kristin for many years. She was an absolute joy to work with and my respect for her professionally and personally was beyond compare.

    Words escape how surprised and saddened I am to hear about her passing. She was one-of-a-kind. While I will be making a contribution to the animal fund indicated, my primary thoughts are with her brother, whom I had a chance to meet, and the rest of her family.

    My prayers are with you and with her.
