Ermelinda Barros Outeiro, 66, of West Hartford, passed away on Monday, June 1, 2020 after battling injuries caused by a traumatic brain injury for 6 ½ years. She was a strong warrior.

Ermelinda was born on May 8, 1954 in Portugal to Luis Domingues Barros and Maria Emilia Barros. In her early years she lived a simple life surrounded by the love of her family consisting of 4 sisters and 3 brothers where she learned the value of hard work, commitment and discipline while cultivating land and rearing livestock on her family’s farm.

Ermelinda is survived by her husband Cesar Outeiro, whom she married on June 9, 1974 in Portugal. They emigrated to the United States in 1975 to build a new life together while discovering the bountiful opportunities the United States had to offer.

Ermelinda is also survived by her daughter Lucilene Annino and her son-in-law Jeffrey Annino, of Newington; her son Paulo Outeiro, of Wethersfield; and her four grandchildren: Jonathan Annino, Paulo James Outeiro, Emily Annino and Tyler Outeiro. She is also endeared and profoundly missed by her many loving family members and friends residing both here in the United States and Portugal.

A loving mother and homemaker, Ermelinda was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family, most especially on Sundays and over the holidays. She loved being outdoors caring for her flower and vegetable gardens and often traveled to Portugal in the summer to visit her beloved and greatly missed family. Ermelinda’s greatest love was her family and her grandchildren were her passion and delight.
A beautiful selfless and giving soul, she always put her family’s needs above her own. Truly the “rock” of the family and a joy to be around. She could often be heard singing and humming while she cooked up a delicious family meal or rocked one of her grandchildren to sleep.

A private viewing will be held at Sheehan-Hilborn-Breen Funeral Home in West Hartford followed by a burial ceremony at West Meadow Cemetery in Newington on Thursday, June 4, 2020. The family will share plans for a Celebration of Life ceremony at a future date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that people make donations in support of traumatic brain injury research to: Online condolences may be made at

Ermelinda nasceua 8 de maio de 1954 em Portugal com Luís Domingues Barros e Maria Emília Barros. Nos seus primeiros anos viveu uma vida simples rodeada pelo amor da suafamília, composta por 4 irmãs e 3 irmãos, ondeaprendeuo valor do trabalho árduo, do empenho e da disciplina enquanto cultivava terras e criava gado na quinta da sua família.

Ermelinda sobreviveu ao marido, César Outeiro, com quem casou a 9 de junho de 1974 em Portugal. Emigraram para os Estados Unidos em 1975 para construir uma nova vida juntos, enquanto descobriam as abundantes oportunidades que os Estados Unidos tinham para oferecer.

Mãe e dona de casa amorosas, Ermelinda era uma cozinheira notável e gostava de preparar refeições para a sua família, especialmente aos domingos e durante as férias. Adorava estar ao ar livre cuidando das suas hortas e muitas vezes viajou para Portugal no verão para visitar a sua amada e muito sentida família. O maior amor de Ermelinda era a sua família e os seus netos eram a sua paixão e prazer.

Uma bela alma altruísta e generosa, ela sempre colocou as necessidades da sua família acima das suas. Verdadeiramente a "pedra" da família e uma alegria de estar por perto. Ouvia-se muitas vezes a cantar e a cantarolar enquanto cozinhava uma deliciosa refeição familiar ouabanava um dos netos para dormir.

Uma visita privada será realizada na Funerária Sheehan-Hillborn-Breen, em West Hartford, seguida de uma cerimónia fúnebre no Cemitério West Meadow, em Newington, naquinta-feira, 4 de junho de 2020.

Ermelinda and Cesar are my next door neighbors. When I moved in 12 years ago, Ermelinda said to me, "If you ever need anything, call me. Or call my husband." I always admired her gardens. Some years, just before she went to Portugal for vacation, she would appear at my front door with her arms filled with ripe tomatoes. "These are for you." The past years have been so terribly hard for her and the family. May they be comforted. May she rest in peace.
