Faith is survived by her husband Joe. They were married April 17, 2004. The two were completely in love and from that love came the two most important people in Faith’s life, her two children, Molly Irene and Joseph Christian Kosmack. Being a loving mother was Faith’s passion. Everything she did was for her children, they were her pride and joy and her world.

Faith enjoyed sunrises, trips to the ocean and quiet time with her family. Her most enjoyable activity was watching her children play basketball. She loved traveling to games and tournaments and sitting in the gym to watch her children play, a true gym rat.
Faith had a true love of God and lived the Gospel. Every grace and good fruit in her life was a product of her faith in Jesus Christ. She was a member of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Kent, PA and loved attending Mass every week to worship the Lord.
