Shirley worked in the local mills, and with her husband James Bosworth raised and showed Purebred Morgan horses at Autumn Lane. She was proud of the many awards and ribbons won by her horses.

She was an avid quilter, a maker of dozens of counted cross stitch
and needlework samplers, and numerous knitted and crocheted articles of
clothing and afghans.
At Sugar River Mills she was a member of the SAVVY SENIORS, a group that knits, crochets, and looms items to donate to the community. Their handmade items go to the United Way Winter Clothing Drive; the V.A; a number of Cancer Centers like Norris Cotton and Cheshire County; C.H.A.D; the Pregnancy Center of the Upper Valley; several birthing centers and more.
There are no calling hours, or funeral at this time. Her ashes will be interred in Childs Cemetery in Cornish on May 24, 2019.
