Sandra K. Szymczak

April 27, 1951 — October 15, 2023


Sandra K. (Schreuder) Szymczak of Portage, Michigan passed away on Sunday, October 15, 2023, at the age of 72. Sandra was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan on April 27, 1951, to the late Donald and Joyce (Denner) Schreuder. Sandra was married to LeRoy “Roy” Szymczak until his passing in 2016.

In 1969, Sandra graduated from Portage Northern High School. She would eventually dedicate 15 years to, and retire from, Kalamazoo County Friend of the Court. Sandra and Roy were long time residents of Schoolcraft, Michigan. After Roy’s passing, Sandra relocated to Portage where she would be closer to her family.

Sandra enjoyed yardwork and gardening, but more than anything, she cherished time spent with her friends and family – especially if that time included pizza from Bimbo’s Pizza. Sandra could often be found supporting her nieces and nephews at swim meets, soccer games, and football games.

Sandra is survived by her sister, Lisa (Bob) Bonnema; brother-in-law, Rick Lingbeek; nieces and nephews, Benjamin (Shanna) Herson, Todd (Julie) Lingbeek, Mark Lingbeek, Erica Bonnema, and Ashley (Brandon) Tykoski; and many beloved grandnieces and grandnephews.

Preceding Sandra in death were her husband, Roy Szymczak; parents, Donald and Joyce Schreuder; sisters, Donna Lingbeek, Cathy (Dave) Herson, and Sue Schreuder; and niece, Tracy Lingbeek.
