Loretta Spidel

Loretta Mae (Tubowich) Spidel, 95, formerly of Overland Park, KS, died October 11, 2017, at St. Therese Nursing Home in New Hope, MN. She was born March 22, 1922, in the Strawberry Hill area of KC, KS. At 90, upon the death of her husband of 68 years, Ward Spidel, she moved to Minnesota to be near her daughter. Loretta had a huge heart and cherished her family, friends and pets. Always a champion for the underdog, she rescued numerous homeless animals and enjoyed volunteering with La Sertoma and her church. Even at St. Therese, she advocated for those worse off than herself and spent time with the lonely. Never one to sit still, she loved to cook, entertain, garden and redecorate. Loretta is survived by her daughter Sandy Spidel (Neil) Neumann, Minneapolis, MN; her son Tim Spidel, Salina, KS; her granddaughter Connie Spidel, Wheaton, IL; her nephew Jerry (Danna) Brown, Overland Park, KS; 8 grandnieces and grandnephews; and 14 great-grandnieces and great-grandnephews. 







Services will be Friday, November 24 at 11:00 am at Curé of Ars 9401 Mission Rd, Leawood, Kansas 66206 with a visitation from at 10:00 am-11:00am.

  1. John Christiansen Says:

    I am sorry to hear of your moms passing. Both your dad and mom were so kind and good friends to my parents and myself. Your dad always ask about how things were going with the scouts from the time I got my Eagle through my working career. The last time I saw them was when mom and dad were at the independent living place in OP. The 5 of us ate lunch together and I listened as dad and Ward exchanged stories about the Gas Company. Mom passed away in late August this year so I understand your loss and will send prayers for you. Respectfully John Christiansen

  2. Sandy Spidel Neumann Says:

    Thanks for your condolences. M&D loved your parents dearly. Glad you had a chance to have lunch with them. And I’m sorry to hear about your mom. We are blessed to have had them as long as we did — and all the wonderful memories.
