She enjoyed dogs, especially French poodles, gardening, health foods, herbs, and her loyalty to the Lawrence Welk Show was legendary.
Mrs. Kanary is survived by her son Dale (Linda) Kanary of Doylestown, daughters Barbara (Keith) Houser of DeSoto, TX and Deborah Goss of Melissa, Texas, four grandchildren, two great grandchildren, and sister Josephine Klekota of Lorain.
