Connie Kanaday

Resident of Dahlonega

Connie Kanaday, 87, of Dahlonega, formerly of St. Petersburg, Florida, passed away peacefully in her home on June 6, 2018. 

She worked for the US Government in Florida, California, and Kararchi, Pakistan. It was in Karachi that she met the love of her life, Joe. They were married for 60 years.

Connie made it a wonderful life for our family with her love, strength, strong faith, and fierce devotion. She always made our house a home. God made her and gave her to our family as his precious gift. She was our foundation, our rock, the glue that kept us all together. Without her we would not be the family that we are. Our closeness and our love was all because of her. We will love and miss her always.

Connie is preceded in death by her husband Joe Kanaday and beloved Rachael.

She is survived by twin daughters Brett and Brenda Kanaday, son Michael Kanaday, daughter in law Vandy Kanaday, granddaughter Kori Kanaday, sister Ann Conner, and in laws Paul Stringer, Frances and Vaughn Chastain, numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives also survive. 

Flowers will be accepted and appreciated, however Connie requested that in her memory you would do a random act of kindness; help a neighbor, volunteer, mentor a child, spend time with a friend, take care of our country, be good to one another, and be the one to make a difference in someone’s life.

A funeral service celebrating Connie’s life was held on Saturday June 9, 2018 in the chapel of Dahlonega Funeral Home. Rev. Gerald Edmondson officiated. Per Connie’s request a private burial took place on Sunday.
