         Shirley was born on September 20, 1939 in Worcester and was the daughter of Francis R. and Viola R. (Martinez) DesRosiers and grew up in Worcester, and attended Worcester Public Schools. Shirley worked several manufacturing jobs before retiring to care for her husband Roland before his death.

She was a proud grandmother that was always present at all their school functions, and just loved being with them. Shirley was always laughing and much enjoyed the company of family and friends, feeding the birds, and was always admired for her green thumb.
