Barbara Anne Kulberg, aged 78, passed away on June 20, 2019 at home with her loving family by her side. She was the beloved daughter of the late Eleanor Marie Wright Kulberg and John Francis Kulberg.

Her career as a Registered Nurse included Charge Nursing at Park City Hospital, Public Health, and School Nursing with Fairfield VNA.
Barbara was an avid sports fan, and loved cheering for the UConn Women’s Basketball team, New England Patriots, and Boston Red Sox.

Barbara always wore a bright smile on her face and was loved by all who knew her.
