Luanna Nichols Anderson, 95, died Sunday, Sept. 2, 2018, at University Hospital in Louisville.
She was born Feb. 4, 1923, to George and Kitty Nichols. She was a teacher for 32 years. She began her teaching career in a one-room school at Snap and then at Big Clifty. She was asked by then Superintendent Oran P. Lawler to consider teaching due to a shortage of teachers in Grayson County.
She earned her teaching degree from Western Kentucky University while teaching and while her own children were attending college. She spent most of her career at Clarkson Elementary. Every child she taught had a special place in her heart.
Luanna leaves behind a legacy of love and kindness. She had an impact on so many lives during her 95 years. She will be missed by all who loved her.
Survivors include two sons, Donald Ray Anderson (Margaret) and Edward Louis Anderson (Phyllis); four grandchildren, Debra Brackett (Gunner), Wallace Anderson (Sissy), Erin Anderson and Michael Anderson; and five great-grandchildren, Laska Anderson, Kevin Brackett, Jay Brackett, Lainie Anderson and River Anderson.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of more than 70 years, A.L. "Chick" Anderson; three brothers, Dr. George Riley Nichols, Dr. Clyde Nichols and Dr. Cletus Nichols; and one sister, Altha Nichols Cain.
The funeral is 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, at the Rogers-Oller Funeral Home in Clarkson, with the Rev. Rick Holladay officiating. Burial is in Clarkson Cemetery.
