Autumn was born in Greenfield on October 5, 1998 the daughter of Jill Lively and Shawn Walsh. She graduated from Electrical Studies at Franklin County Technical School as a member of the class of 2017.
Autumn was that girl who lit up a room with her smile, laugh and personality. Everyone was happy to see her and her infectious laugh was unmistakable. She enjoyed life and all that she could surrounded herself with. From her dear friends Chelsea, Dylan and Bailey to her beloved niece Kennedy with whom she had a special bond. Autumn cherished her family and was always putting others needs before her own. Autumn could make an instant connection with babies and infants, as well as people in their 80's or 90's.
She enjoyed hiking up to Catamount, fishing wherever she could, camping under the stars, car rides to anywhere, she loved to draw and was very good at it. Her musical interests were as diverse as she was. She loved to play classic music loud and among her favorites were Johnny Cash and AC/DC as well as everything in between. She loved Christmas music and would sing them year round, Dominic the Donkey was commonly heard from her.
A child at heart, Nickelodeon was a favorite channel and if you needed a recommendation for a movie on Netflix, Autumn was right there with a great suggestion.
Autumn was a source of love for her family and friends. Whether playing board games with her grandmother or taking care of her great grandmother or playing with Lilly, Ruby, Jake and Gavin she always had a smile and that infectious laugh. She also loved her dogs Muzzy and Mia and their occasional walks.
