Colleen E. Kanaly

PLATTSBURGH — Colleen E. Kanaly, 87, formerly of Dannemora and most recently of Lake Forest, died peacefully Friday March 1, 2013 at CVPH Medical Center surrounded by her loving family.

She was born in Plattsburgh on Sept. 8, 1925 the daughter of Earl and Bessie (Mulvey) Arnold.

She married Robert Kanaly in 1948 in Willsboro, N.Y. He died on Sept. 1, 1995.

Colleen was a retired teacher, serving the students in the Saranac Central School District until her retirement after 30 years of service. Teaching was an important part of her life, as she continued educating adults through the Literacy Volunteers of America program. She was a member of the New York State United Teachers and Champlain Valley Retired Teachers. She was also a member of the American Legion Auxiliary and served on the Advisory Board for the Aging.

Colleen's favorite memories were created through the time spent with her family. Growing up on a farm in Harkness taught her the true meaning of family, the importance of creating traditions, and fostering relationships. Her legacy will carry on with her family, who will miss her dearly.

Colleen is survived by her five children and their families, Michael and Dianne Kanaly of Halfmoon, N.Y., Karen Lopez of Port Kent, Scott and Patricia Kanaly of Dannemora, Mary Lou LaRocque-Megarr of Plattsburgh, and Larry and Tammy Kanaly of Black Lake, N.Y.
