Sharyn Kost
Branchburg, NJ

Sharyn Kost, 69, of Branchburg, NJ, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 07, 2017. Born in Scranton, PA, she's been a resident of Branchburg for the last 44 years.
Mrs. Kost worked as an English teacher for 37 years at Bridgewater-Raritan High School.
She was an avid researcher into her Irish ancestry, which brought many people together, and she made trips to Ireland to meet family and visit important family sites in the Irish countryside. She also enjoyed photographing and documenting all of life's joys and creating photobooks for her family. She loved the culture of New York City, and was always up for Broadway shows, new restaurants, museums or shopping. She loved being race support at her family's Ironman events and marathons and was the most devoted "Mamie" to her precious granddaughter, Sloane. Her tremendous heart, selfless attitude, and beautiful smile will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.
She is preceded in death by her beloved parents, Mary and Patrick Hines.
Surviving are her beloved husband of 46 years, Michael Kost; her loving daughter, Gillian and husband, Chris of Westfield, NJ; and her adored granddaughter, Sloane.
A memorial visitation will be held on Friday, February 10, 2017 from 10:00am- 12:00pm with a prayer service beginning at 12:00pm at the Branchburg Funeral Home, 910 US Highway 202 South, Branchburg, NJ 08876.
