Barbara Rutkowski Brinsko, age 95, beloved wife of the late Edward Brinsko, passed away Thursday, April 27, 2023, in her home surrounded by her family. Barbara was born in Bridgeport, daughter of the late Zigmunt and Charlotte Mozelewski Rutkowski, and was a lifelong resident. She retired after working many years for the Bridgeport Nutrition Center. Survivors include her devoted children Edward Brinsko Jr. and wife Diane Deluca, Pamela Acquista and husband Richard, four cherished grandchildren Emily, Richard, Rebecca, and Jennifer, three great grandchildren Jackson Bittel, Lucas Martin, and Olivia Crouse, and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by six brothers and sisters. Barbara's life was full of love for family and friends. She loved gatherings and was known for her ability to bring people together. She was most known for garage parties where friends and family gathered for good food and lots of laughs.  Barb was also a great lover of animals, a trait inherited by her children and grandchildren. She felt that pets complete a home, and considered them part of the family. This compassion extended to the squirrels and birds in her yard, and she made sure that every grocery order included bread for the birds.
