History of Lincoln Irish Dancers

Sad Announcement

It is with deep sadness we announce the death of our founder, LuAnne Anderson. LuAnne loved music and dance. She founded the Lincoln Irish Dancers (LID) in 1997 and traveled to Ireland, London, and the Czech Republic seeking out dances and workshops in pursuit of her passion. She shared her joy of music and dance with everyone.

LuAnne is survived by her husband, Brad Anderson of Lincoln; Brad is also a lifetime member of LID; son, Ian Anderson of New Orleans LA; daughter (son-in-law), Hannah (Tracy) Kahler of Lincoln; grandchildren, Emmett and Delia Kahler; siblings (spouses), Vondra (Larry) Abbott of Denver CO and Tim (Julie) Shaw of Lincoln.

Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. on March 4 at First Plymouth Congregational Church, 2000 D Street, Lincoln. Memorials to Alzheimer’s Association. Condolences may be left at Butherus, Maser & Love Funeral Home.  The rest of the obituary is online at the Lincoln Journal Star web site LuAnne Anderson obit.
