Obituary of Debra Rutkowski

Debra Rutkowski, 69, of Dickson City, died Friday at the Jewish Home of NEPA in Scranton. Her husband was Stanley Rutkowski, who passed away in 2015. The couple was happily married for 42 years. Born in Throop, she was the daughter of the late Anthony “Bolo” and Myrtle Lee Chiodo. She was a graduate of Mid Valley High School and was employed at RCA/Thomson Consumer Electronics, Dunkin’ Donuts, Old Country Buffet, Golden Corral, and S & K Merchandising prior to her retirement. Debra loved painting, making crafts, and spent many years as a Cub Scout Leader for Pack 21 in Dickson City and a member of the Lady’s Aid Society for her church. She loved watching sports, especially the Philadelphia Phillies and Dallas Cowboys (despite her family’s failed attempts to convert her football allegiance) and loved rooting for the underdog. She was a kind and loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend who will be dearly missed by her family and friends. Surviving are her children, Stanley Rutkowski and wife Natalie, Vienna, Austria and Jason Rutkowski, Dickson City; her grandchildren, Sarah, Anna, and Isabella Rutkowski; a sister Linda Wright, Moscow, her brothers, Arnold Chiodo and wife Marti, Olyphant, Barry Chiodo, Dickson City, Paul Chiodo, Throop, many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
