My wife and I had the immense pleasure of knowing & working with Shirley in various Town organizations. She was an amazing person with such a positive outlook on life. As noted in the obituary, she was a major contributor to the Town.
Condolences to her family & to her many friends.

I remember Shirley from the library. She always had a big smile and was so helpful. I feel blessed to have known her. Interesting fact: my daughter who grew up in Boxboro and knew Shirley, is now a teacher in Palmer!! Bless her and her family
