The KanKouran family has lost one of its most beloved members, Mama Annod. She has been a part of the KanKouran family for many years. Her three children, Curtis, Roy, and Mary grew up in KanKouran. Mary is going off to college this year, Curtis is a commercial pilot, and Roy is a lead drummer with KanKouran’s Senior Company. We will truly miss Mama Annod’s energy, presence, passion, and her deep love for dance and for life. Mama Annod, you will always have a place on the dance floor.
