Sandra Spuzich Obituary
Sandra Spuzich

Indianapolis born Professional golfer, aged 78, passed away at home on October 6th, 2015. Sandra was perhaps one of Indiana's finest golfers, learning the game and honing her skills under the tutelage of Mike Sullivan at Speedway GC. Competing on the LPGA Tour for 30 years, she was the first Hoosier to win golf's US Open (1966) and amassed a further 6 victories before retiring from the Tour with a ranking amongst the top 70 career money winners.

Living in the "Haughville" neighborhood, Sandra attended local schools, graduating from Washington High School, and then graduated from IU with a degree in Education, teaching K-9 Physical Education in IPS schools for 2 ½ years before joining the LPGA Tour. In retirement, she lovingly tended her tomato and flower gardens and enjoyed her view over Broadmoor CC, while supervising her cats, Cotza, Beau and Ty.

She is survived by her Life Partner, Joyce Kazmierski; sister, Mary Lou Spaulding (husband David); nephews, Steven and Chip Spaulding; niece, Lori Spaulding; grand-nephews, Michael and Cameron Spaulding; and grand-niece, Alyssa Spaulding.

The family will have a private Celebration of Life gathering. Donations in Sandra's memory may be made to your favorite local Animal Shelter. Online condolences may be shared at
