Barbara J. Pinkowsky, age 61, of Cedarburg, WI, formerly of Port Washington passed away Saturday, September 23, 2017 at Cedar Springs Health and Rehabilitation in Cedarburg.
She was born on February 15, 1956; daughter of Eugene W. and Delores J. “Dorie” Stoelb Ewig. Barb graduated from Port Washington High School, class of 1974. She worked for a bit at Simplicity Manufacturing, later moving to Texas and working for Mark Travel. She returned to Wisconsin and went back to school. She was an Administrative Assistant for over 20 years at Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) - Mequon.
She was a great mom that took great pride in family and friends. Animals, both cats and dogs, were always a source of joy for Barb. One of her great passions was music, attending concerts no matter her age. Barb was always up for an adventure or road trip, and made many memories out on the lake. She loved the water her entire life, doing water ballet as a child and becoming a life guard later on. Barb became more active bicycle riding with her changing health.
Barb is survived by her daughter Leah Pinkowsky of Cedarburg; her father Gene Ewig of Port Washington, her boyfriend Dave Baumann of Saukville and his children Mike (Carrie), Dan (Melissa) and Sarah Baumann; her brothers Jeffrey (Debra) Ewig of Port Washington, Michael (Kim) Ewig of Virginia Beach, VA and Jim (Sue) Ewig of Superior, CO, niece Erin Ewig, nephews Matt, Andrew (Alesha) and Jack Ewig, other relatives and friends.
