 Sandra Kay (Jackson) Szlanfucht, age 69, of South Bend, Indiana, died peacefully Tuesday, March 15, 2022 in her family’s presence.

Her life began May 2, 1952 in South Bend, Indiana to Loys and Myrna Jackson.  She grew up in Three Oaks, Michigan and South Bend, Indiana.  She married the love of her life, Carl Joseph Szlanfucht, September 28, 1987 in South Bend.  After twenty-two years of marriage, he preceded her in death April 1, 2010.

You could find Sandra spending all her time with family and friends during any event, gathering, going to the Casino, or even playing cards. She looked forward to her “Mom and Son(s)” time, whether it be dinner or multiple phone calls with lot of laughs. Sandra was so giving and loving all the time, no matter who you were. She loved kids. She loved watching Michigan and the Bears football.  If you have had the opportunity to have had her in your life, you would never forget her smile, laugh and spunky self.

Sandra will be greatly missed by family and friends.  She is survived by her two sons, Joseph Liszewski, Robert (Christina) Liszewski, both of South Bend, Indiana; two grandchildren; one brother, Larry Jackson of Tennessee; one sister-in-law, Dell Jackson; and a host of nieces and nephews.  Along with her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; one sister, Janie Jackson; and one brother, Rex Jackson, Sr.
