Octavia L. Introvigne, 91, of Stafford Springs, passed away Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018, at Evergreen Health Care Center.

She was born in Stafford Springs, daughter of the late John and Octavia Clara (Champagne) Introvigne. Octavia graduated with honors from Stafford High School in 1944 and went to work as a clerk-typist at the Connecticut Mansfield Training School for four years. She then graduated from the New York Foundling Hospital School of Baby Nursing in New York City in 1949 as the highest ranking student in her class, and worked for a while as a nanny. Octavia worked next as a secretary at American Mutual Insurance Companies for 39 years, and then as a secretary at All Saints Church in Somers. Octavia was a devout Catholic and parishioner of St. Edward Church. She devoted many years to helping out around the church, being a Eucharistic minister, and bringing communion to people who couldn't leave their homes or to people at local nursing homes and hospitals. She was also a member of the former Court Isabella 785 Catholic Daughters of America.

Besides her parents, Octavia was predeceased by her two brothers, Angelo and Richard Introvigne. She is survived by several cousins and many friends.
