What you describe sounds normal and natural for hostas. As the weather gets cold they go into dormancy. Yellowing leaves are an indication this is happening in your garden. When the first frost hits the foliage usually dissolves. Just rake away the dead foliage and cover over the soil with a few inches of organic matter to help protect the roots. Next spring new leaves will emerge and your plants will look beautiful again. Best wishes with your garden!
