Deborah (Debbie) Kay Rybinski, age 64 of Rapid River, Michigan, passed away on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.

She was born to the late Robert Clearwood Sr. and Anna Mae Clearwood on October 28, 1955.
She was united in marriage to her high school sweetheart Edward Rybinski on November, 10th 1973 and loved every minute of their 46 years of marriage. Ed and Deb moved to the U.P in 1987 because of their love for the outdoors and settled in the Stonington area where they raised their daughters who have also inherited her love for the outdoors. Deb was a Eucharistic minister, CCD teacher, volunteered to clean the rectory and her and Ed did the children’s liturgy at St. Charles Borromeo church in Rapid River. Debbie was a resident of Christain Park Village in Escanaba, Michigan, for the last 3 years where she enjoyed playing cribbage, bingo, singing karaoke, fishing, and outings to the casino. She loved holidays where her family could get together, in fact she was known to question her daughter’s months in advance to prepare holiday plans. She often times spoke of her love for all her family and friends downstate. Her greatest joy in life came from spending time with her family, camping trips were among her favorite things to do but anytime her family was together she would just light up with joy.

Deborah is survived by her husband, Edward Rybinski, and her two daughters, Samantha(Jeff) Skorupski and MaryBeth(Phil) Amis, and her most precious grandson Colton Amis. She also leaves behind a lot of caring relatives and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents Robert Clearwood Sr. and Anna Mae Clearwood. Her sons Michael and Edward Rybinski Jr. Her Grandsons James and Jeffrey Skorupski.

Deb had a love for music and the outdoors so the family would like to ask we all share that love one last time with her by wearing your favorite bands t-shirt or throw a little camo on for the service. She will be buried in her Nitty Gritty Dirt Band t-shirt, as her most memorable moment was October 12th, 2018 attending the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band concert where she gained a backstage pass to meet the band, as Fishing in the Dark was her and Ed’s song.

Proverbs 3:18
She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed.

Family will receive friends Saturday, November 16, 2019 from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM at the Skradski Funeral Home in Gladstone. Closing Prayers will conclude visitation at 2:00 PM at the Skradski Funeral Home in Gladstone. Deb will be laid to rest in the Rapid River Cemetery.
