HUDSON-  Shirley A. (Coccione) Beauregard, a long time resident of Hudson, passed away Tuesday, the 18th of December at the Westborough Beaumont Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.

Born to Dante and Sophia Coccione in Clinton, Massachusetts in 1934, Shirley graduated from Clinton High School and attended Memorial Hospital School of Nursing and Quinsigamond Community College, where she earned her R.N. degree.  On February 19, 1955, she married the love of her life, Richard George Beauregard, and moved to Hudson where they raised their two daughters, Linda and Holly, and two sons, Richard and Robert.

Shirley was preceded in death by her beloved husband Richard, and her son Robert Carl Beauregard.  She is survived by her sister Carol Dussault and her husband Richard of Sun Lakes, Arizona; her daughter Linda Colaluca and her partner John Sullivan of Maynard; her son Richard Beauregard of Westerly, Rhode Island; her daughter Holly Mathews and her husband Michael Orphanis of Hudson; seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
