By on June 15, 2016

Lindsey Margaret (Ross) Anderson, 63, of Lititz, passed into the loving arms of Jesus on Wednesday, May 25, 2016, suddenly at home.

She was the beautiful and loving wife of Richard (Andy) Anderson to whom she was married for 37 years. Born in Dundee, Scotland, she was the daughter of the late George and Charlotte Ross of Glasgow, Scotland; her father being a D-Day and Battle of the Bulge survivor.

Lindsey completed public school at Madras College next to “The Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews.” She then worked at Dundee Dental College where she obtained her registered nursing degree while studying at night, becoming head nurse.

Lindsey met her husband on the beach while on vacation in Palma de Majorca, Spain, for just one day. After dancing on the rooftop of the hotel bar with her to-be husband’s ship (USS Forrestal) in the background, she gave him her address and walked him to back to fleet landing. After one year and six days of writing, calling, and visiting America, they were married in Dundee.

Lindsey was a kind soul, always thinking of others over herself, with her wonderful Scottish brogue and infectious laugh. She became a naturalized citizen in 1982, loved and was loved by her new American family but was fiercely proud of her Scottish heritage. She was a committed dog lover and a gourmet cook who loved history and traveling with her husband. She was a natural at being a loving mother, always knowing how to handle any situation. She attended Grace Church in Lititz.

Lindsey will always be lovingly remembered by her husband; daughters: Charlotte D’Angelo and Andrea Knippenberg, of Pennsylvania, and their husbands; sister-in-law: Gini TenEyck and family; her sister: Aileen (wife of Albert Roy); nephews: Scott, Stephen, Fraser, Gareth of Scotland and Utah; and five grandchildren.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her granddaughter: Kayle Marie.

Lindsey has been cremated and her ashes will be tossed in the Tay River in Dundee, where her husband plans to join her one day. Remembrance services will be announced at a later time.
