She grew up in Wynnefield, then moved to Overbrook Park with her husband, Marvin Kanze, and the first three of her four boys. She later moved to Havertown and then to Valley Forge Towers. She is now a resident at the Horsham Center for Jewish Life assisted living facility.
Kanze raised four boys, helped her husband start an air conditioning business and started a framing business. She knitted and crocheted and made dresses and cookies.
Four generations of her family celebrated her birthday, including her four boys, 10 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren.
