d. August 27, 2021

Shirley Louise Wilcoxen (Michigan), age 84, of South Weymouth on August 27, 2021. Shirley was surrounded by her family and passed away peacefully at Pope Nursing Home and Rehabilitation of Weymouth.

Shirley was one of the strongest, kindest women to ever walk this earth and our family was blessed to have her as the head of the family. Shirley graduated from Burdett College in 1957 with a degree in Business Administration. After graduating, she went on to pursue a career in accounting.

In 1957 she met Roy Wilcoxen and together they went on to have 3 beautiful children. Shirley was a wonderful and loving mother who gave her all to her family. We will never be able to fill the space left behind by her. Shirley worked for a prestigious Advertising company in Boston where she was a hand model. Throughout the years she was also employed by Shawmut Bank, The National Park Service and the Department of Defense where she retired from the Naval Air Station in South Weymouth.

Shirley was predeceased by her parents Frances (Hickman) and Sarkis Michigan, siblings Grace Sawyer and Albert Michigan, husband Roy Wilcoxen, son-in-law, Mark Rose and Son Kevin Wilcoxen. Shirley is survived by daughters Christine Rose of South Weymouth and Laurie McMullin and her husband, Bruce of Norton, MA. Also survived by Grandson Joshua Green and his wife Jennifer of Abington and Granddaughter Valerie Reed and her husband Stephen of South Weymouth, Great Grandson Elias and Great granddaughter Jenna and many nieces and nephews.

Donations can be made in Shirley’s name to the Alzheimer's Association or Animal Humane Society as she was a HUGE animal lover. Our family respects the wishes of Shirley therefore services will be private and are in the care of C. C. Shepherd Funeral Home located in Weymouth, MA.
