We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Maloney Funeral Home, Inc.
Warren, Anne, Elizabeth, age 86, longtime resident of Winsted, passed
away with her children at her side, Thursday, December 23. Born and
raised in Norwalk, Ct., she and her former husband, Douglas Davenport,
looking for a rural community in which to raise their young family, moved to
Winsted in the early 1970’s.
Anne enjoyed the outdoors and nature immensely. She took great pleasure
in raising her children in a place where they could roam the fields while she
could garden, raise ducks and geese and indulge her interests in the
Anne was a graduate of Norwalk High School in 1953, and received her BS
from University of Connecticut.
Anne was a lively woman with a keen intellect. She was a good student
and excelled in biology and the sciences. As anyone who may have had
their grammar softly corrected by her could attest, she was also an A
student in English. Her interests were as diverse as her abilities. On the
home-front she was a loving mother, outstanding cook, and gifted gardener.
Professionally, she chose an occupation which her petite stature and
studious nature would not necessarily suggest. However she delighted in
playing against type and being a bit of a “tough guy”. Anne was one of the
first licensed bail-bond agents in the state of Connecticut. Incurring the
minor celebrity of having an article about her featured in the Hartford
Courant Magazine. An image of her, at the firing range, weapon in hand,
crimefighting mom, on the cover.
Anne was a student as well as lover of nature. She was a skilled birder and
knew a great deal of botany, geology, and chemistry. She travelled
extensively with her family and on her own to South America, Europe,
Greece and the Western United States.
Her loving nature, mischievous, occasionally baudy sense of humor will be
missed by those who knew her, and deeply mourned by those who loved

at Litchfield Woods who with warmth and dedication cared for Anne in the
last years of her life. They did so with a level of diligence and affection that
