Lucille Betty Svatos, 94, of Ely, MN, passed away on Wednesday, July 12, 2023, at the Ely Bloomenson Community Hospital. Lucille was born on May 21, 1929, to William and Mary Wencl in Owatonna, MN. She grew up on a farm in Blooming Prairie, MN, and attended the country school.
On April 9, 1947, she married Charles Svatos in Litomysl, MN. They lived in Owatonna before moving to Hoyt Lakes, MN, in 1957. In 1963 they moved to Soudan, MN. After being widowed she moved to Tower, MN in 1990. She resided there until moving to Ely Carefree Assisted Living in 2022.
Lucille was a member of St. Martin’s Catholic Church in Tower. For many years she was a “lunch lady” in the Tower-Soudan schools. She enjoyed cooking, baking, bowling, reading, dancing, puzzles, and watching the Twins, but most of all spending time with her family.
She was preceded in death by her husband Charles, daughter and son-in-law Kathy and Keith Bush, infant grandson Bradley Svatos, and sisters Marlene Hansen and Regina Wacek.
