LONGMEADOW - Maria de Lourdes (Robillard) Contrino, “Lou,” 82, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend, passed into eternal life surrounded by loving family on November 13, 2019. She was born in Springfield, MA, to the late Paul E. Robillard and Marie (Duguay) Robillard on January 20, 1937. Lourdes was a 1955 graduate of Commerce High School. Lourdes was a secretary for Chain Belt Company in Springfield, MA, before she left to raise her family. Later in life, Lourdes was a secretary at EBTEC Corp and later at Southworth Paper Company until she returned to school to become an Electrologist. Lourdes owned and managed her Electrology business for more than 20 years and became consultant to the Atty General for Electrology in the state of CT. Lourdes loved her family dearly and was proud of each as an individual. Lourdes had a strong faith and was devoted to Jesus by praying to His Mother Mary, her namesake, “Our Lady of Lourdes”. In addition to her parents, Lourdes was predeceased by two sisters, one brother, and two brothers-in-law; Marie Lillianne Raiche, Andree Welch, Paul Robillard, Joseph Raiche, and Bennie Contrino.
