Lindsay Anderson

Lindsay passed away at her home in Kirkland, Washington, on April 23, 2022.  She was 64 years old.

Lindsay Ann Anderson was born in Whittier, California, to Donald Adolph Anderson and Patricia Way Anderson on April 27, 1957. She joined sister Kara, and welcomed sister Dana in 1959.

She was an outstanding student who loved classic literature and mathematics. She also excelled in sports and was on the swim team at the Orinda Country Club as a young girl. She tolerated many years of piano lessons, and was her father’s hope for “his concert pianist”. Lindsay sang in her church choir, and was a Brownie scout.

Upon her parents’ divorce in 1967, she moved to Belvedere, California, attending Reed Elementary and Del Mar (middle) Schools. She was co-valedictorian at Redwood High School in 1975, and edited the yearbook there. She attended Williams College in Massachusetts, where she met her future husband, before graduating from the University of California at Berkeley with a B. A. in Architecture, summa cum laude.

Lindsay was also an accomplished runner, competing in the LA marathon in the late 1980s. She loved sailing, and could navigate any storm! As a teenager, she and her friend Amy once stole the Boston Whaler speedboat to cruise all the way to Angel Island in San Francisco Bay, unknown to her family. She often bicycled into town with her beloved golden retriever, Cedric, by her side. She was a dedicated Democrat who made sure to vote. Her acquaintances included Walter Cronkite, Al Gore, and Robin Williams. She kept her childhood friends throughout her lifetime.

Lindsay married Marshall T. Partington on July 5, 1980, and lived in several cities across the country during their marriage. Twins Trevor and Olivia arrived in 1991, and the family moved from Pennsylvania to Washington State in 1995. Lindsay had quit her architecture career by then, to devote herself to her children and the arts.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Don and Pat, and her nephew, Reid.

Lindsay is survived by son, Trevor, his wife Courtney, and their daughters Claire and Aubrey; daughter, Olivia, and her husband, Clint; stepmother, Jacquelyn; sister, Kara; sister, Dana, and her husband, Moses; nephew, Kyle, and his wife, Keara; half-brother Taylor, his wife, Julie, and twins Allison and Carson; stepbrother, Peter; numerous friends and cousins.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.

Donations in Lindsay’s memory may be made to Kirkland Arts Center, 620 Market Street, Kirkland, Washington 98033, or to a charity of one’s choice.

    Many years ago…….Lindsay was such a fun part of the Anderson Trio along with the Bird Duo….on the occasions of our family get togethers. We girls could kick up the dust and create endless entertainment for our parents!?!? We then grew up and moved in many directions, but always kept track of each other through our parent’s and have since all renewed our girl’s friendships again.
    The last time I saw Lindsay was in Carmel, about 5 years ago, on one of her visits to see Pat. We 3 had such a delightful visit running around town and back to enjoy a classic piano player at Pat’s assisted living home. It was such fun to enjoy seeing them both and especially Lindsay as it had been many years since I had last seen her. She talked so enthusiastically about her activities in the art world in Kirkland. Lindsay left us far too soon and Jim and I send our deepest sympathy and love to Kari, Dana, Olivia and Trevor and Marshall and the rest of her loving family and friends. A bright and talented star has joined her parents in a heavenly reunion! You are missed Dear Lindsay!!!!
