Elaine H. Spoors, age 80 of Eagle Lake died Monday, November 16, 2020 at the Good Samaritan Nursing Home in Winthrop, MN.  

Elaine was born August 6, 1940 to Nicholas and Mary Lorentz in Mankato.

Elaine was devoted to her family and a loving mother.  She married James Spoors on February 9, 1958 and together they raised their four children.

Elaine worked many years for both Midtex and Condux International in Accounting and finally retired from the work she loved at the age of 77.  

Elaine enjoyed many things, but had a special fondness for ‘scratch off’ tickets and the occasional trip to the casino.  She had a beautiful smile and a laugh to remember and always remained happy with the simple things in life.

Elaine is survived by her children, Jerry Spoors (Shirley), Russell Spoors, Keith Spoors (Pam Veith), and Sheila Spoors-Babcock (Dave), her grandchildren Ben Babcock and Hayley Spoors, her sisters Lavonne Johnson and Eleanor (Don) Solem, and many nieces and nephews.

Elaine was preceded in death by her husband, James, her brothers, Romie, Gene, Harvey, and Wendell, and her sister Charlotte.  

A memorial service in celebration of Elaine’s life will be announced and held at a later date.  Condolences may be addressed to Jerry Spoors, 49892 Old River Bluff Road, North Mankato, MN 56003.

We extend our deepest sympathy in the loss of your Mom. She was something and I enjoyed our talks together at Condux and on the phone.

Dear family of Elaine, I was saddened by the loss of a wonderful person and friend. She and I played lots of card games back 30 yrs ago or more. I saw her at MRCI thrift store last summer, where I volunteer and talked for a minute or so. I sent her a card when she won big in Eagle lake, knowing she was a grateful person, and happy she had won. She was a very nice person and I also knew Jim from my younger years in North Mankato. My sympathy to you all. We are in Arizona for the winter. Lana Ennis
