NATIONAL KATYŃ MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
Edward B. Rybczynski, Esq.
AUGUST 9, 1930 ~ NOVEMBER 3, 2019
The National Katyń Memorial Foundation, its members, supporters and friends, along with Baltimore Polonia, are mourning the loss of beloved Edward B. Rybczynski, Esq. He was a member of the Katyń Memorial Committee, the organization that raised the money and built the Monument we now promote. Edward acted as the liaison for the Committee in our interaction with all government offices, including that of the Polish government. He served for 4 years as Vice Chairman, under Al Wisniewski, and 2 years as Chairman. Edward, along with with Bill Krol and Richard Poremski, wrote the transition paperwork which dissolved the Katyń Memorial Committee and created the current National Katyń Memorial Foundation.
In 1995 Edward recruited his son, Thomas Rybczynski, who currently serves as Foundation Secretary. Tom’s son, Adam Rybczynski, one of Edward’s 22 grandchildren, is also a member of our Foundation.
Arrangements are as follows: Visitation at Kaczorowski Funeral Home, P.A., 1201 Dundalk Ave., is on Thursday, November 7 from 3-5 and 7-9 PM. Funeral Mass at Holy Rosary Church on Friday, November 8 at 10am. Interment is at Holy Rosary Cemetery. Obituary may be found at www.kfhpa.com/notices/Edward-RybczynskiEsq.
In lieu of flowers, the family has graciously requested that donations be made to the Katyń Memorial Foundation. Donations may be made by clicking here.
