Helen Marie Kost Heard, 61, became an angel in heaven on June 5th, 2014. She was a devoted wife, extraordinary mother, and a loving soul to anyone who was blessed by meeting her.
Helen was born in Weehawken, NJ but lived in Shark River Hills for 11 years until she married her soul mate in 1975. They then moved to Ocean Grove, NJ where they were blessed with a son and made many special memories together. They’ve happily resided in Virginia Beach since 1988.
Helen will be remembered for her love of Christmas, playing cards, Bingo, and taking great care of her family. Her patience and love for all children earned her the name “Nana.”
She will join her infant son, Michael; mother, Emma Kost; father, Michael Kost Sr.; sister, Linda Vuillemot; mother-in-law Ethelyn Heard, father-in-law Frederick Heard and sister-in-law Lois D’Esposito.
Left to cherish her memory are her husband, George Heard, Sr; son George Heard Jr.; brother Michael Kost; sister Dawn and husband Charles Morse; sister Diane Perry; brother Eric Heard and husband Lester Cavagnaro; sister-in-law Jessie Heard; sister-in-law Sarah and husband Roger Tallent; brother-in-law Rick Heard and wife Debbie; 12 nephews, 11 nieces, and 12 great-nieces and nephews.
