Alice Kanable, 97, of Anderson, passed away on March 23, 2014, at Bethany Pointe Health Campus. She was born on April 24, 1916, in Windfall, Indiana, and resided most of her life in the Anderson area.
Thus ends the love story of Ken and Alice Kanable, inseparable for 65 years. Devoted to their family, they hosted many family gatherings at their home in the old Stony Creek Schoolhouse near Lapel. Alice was devoted to her family, preparing a big Sunday dinner every week up until the age of 95. Instead of recipes, Alice preferred making everything from scratch. Her specialties were noodles, dumplings, and pies. And after dinner there was many a grandchild who was rocked in her warm loving arms.
As her favorite red geraniums were nurtured every year, so was the seed of her loving spirit that will live on in the hearts of her family that will treasure her memory.
Alice is survived by her children, Judith (Larry) Connor of Alvarado, TX, and John (Connie) Kanable of Anderson; daughter in-law, Marsha Kanable of Columbus; grandchildren, David Connor, Terri (Mike) Wirt, Kathi (DC) Lucchesi, Rob (Julie) Kanable, Mark Kanable, Kristen (Matt) Hough, and Kelsey Kanable; and 15 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth Kanable, and a son Robert Kanable.
Visitation will be held Thursday from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Robert D. Loose Funeral Homes & Crematory, Anderson.
Services will be at 11:30 a.m. Friday at Bethel United Methodist Church with Pastor William Garver officiating.
Burial will take place in Elwood City Cemetery, Elwood.
