It is with great sadness that the family of Margaret Robillard, 93, of Pittsfield, MA announce her peaceful passing from this earth on January 18, 2024, at the home of her beloved son David.
Born in Springfield, MA on September 4, 1930 to Mary and Roy Bouyea.
Margaret shared close and rich relationships with her siblings, her children, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She had many loving friendships throughout her life and especially with her dearest life long friend Vera Murphy of Springfield, MA.
Margaret and Bernie Robillard began their lives together on January 28, 1956 and after living in California moved back East making Pittsfield their home where they raised four children: David Robillard (partner, Debra Arpante) of Lanesborough, Susan Trudeau of Pittsfield, the late Donna Robillard of CT and the late Lisa Robillard of Pittsfield. Margaret and Bernie enjoyed most being in the company of family, celebrating and supporting those they loved. She was also survived by grandchildren, Julie Perkins Fester, Sara Priest, Rebecca Sawyer, Christopher Robillard, Andrew Trudeau, Jacob Trudeau, Nathan Spangler and Jonathan Spangler and great-grandchildren Noah, Mya, Eva, Ely, Josiah, Ella, Lyla's, Penny, Lucy, Camden, Eloise and Isla.They gave to all of their children and grandchildren the blessing of knowing that we would all, always have a safe and loving place to land. As she gave, Margaret also received. She is a beloved and cherished mother and gram, sister, aunt and friend.
Margaret graduated from The Elms College in Springfield and began her teaching career first in California and then In Pittsfield Public Schools as a first grade teacher. She had a passion for teaching, especially language arts and brought her love of poetry to her young students in creative and innovative ways.
Through all the joys and sorrows of Margaret's life, her deep Christian faith sustained her, brought her peace and confidence that Gods love was ever present and that all would be well. She was a positive warm hearted and generous woman who was known for her sweet, simple, sometimes zany one liners that imparted wisdom and clarity to many situations. Margaret's legacy of faithful love will live in the hearts of all those who shared this life with her.
The family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to her care takers who brought love, laughter and adventure to her life. The affection and care given was priceless.
