AGE: 82 • Ocean Grove

Shirley Boss passed away surrounded by family on November 19, 2017 at the age of 82 due to complications of diabetes at Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune, NJ. Shirley leaves behind daughter, Nancy Mazzola, and son, Cory Boss. Shirley was the beloved grandmother of 10, and great grand-mother of 10. She will be greatly missed by her friends and family, especially her goddaughter Carol. Shirley was born in Lyndhurst, NJ in February, 1935. She graduated from Clifton High School and at 17 married her high school sweetheart. She later divorced and moved to Saint Petersburg, FL. In November 2013 she returned to New Jersey where she lived in Ocean Grove with her son Cory for the remainder of her life. Shirley struggled with alcoholism early in life but in 2017 celebrated 40 years of sobriety. In her long association with Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), she sponsored hundreds of people through the program changing thousands of lives for the better. Later in life she worked as a medical home aid helping the elderly. She was a Christian and loved being in Ocean Grove and attending services in the Great Auditorium. Her love for God and counseling people left an imprint on so many lives. Services will be held at a later date.

The Ocean Grove Memorial Home is in charge of arrangements.
