Ann Marie (Davis) Maloney

October 12, 1960 ~ August 25, 2023 (age 62) 62 Years Old


The mischievous fifth of six children, Ann Marie (Davis) Maloney was
born in Richfield the daughter of J Joseph Davis and Jean Elizabeth
(Elliott) Davis. Growing up circling the paths around Wood Lake led to
circling tracks and a talent for cross country running.  Ann loved
travel and study, spending a semester in Wales to springboard across
Europe.  Later in Idaho, using geology as an excuse to be outside, her
path crossed like-minded student Donald. After cavorting for seven
years, they were married on the first day of spring thirty years ago. A
consummate volunteer, favorite being school libraries, the Election
Judge and Master Gardener grew a family of three children - three
excuses to travel and study that did not exclude skipping school for
spring and fall trips to Teddy Roosevelt National Park, rim to rim down
the Grand Canyon, or logging miles on the North Country Trail. The
shared love of rocks inevitably led to include curling stones, and the
matriarch of the House of Guard rink at the Brainerd Curling Center was
poised to hit the senior circuit.

Ann was diagnosed with brain cancer in November 2019.  On a beautiful
sunny summer day, with a warm breeze coming through the window, Ann died
peacefully and with family. She is preceded in death by her father, J
Joseph Davis, and her mother, Jean Elizabeth (Elliott) Davis. She is
survived by her husband, Donald Joseph Maloney, their three children,
Hannah Bridget Maloney, Patrick Joseph Maloney, and Teagan Xavara
Maloney, and her siblings, Joseph (Mary) Davis, Thomas (Lyn) Davis, Jean
(Dave) Danielson, James Davis, and Kathleen (Matt) Davis,

Ann was a truly caring and compassionate woman who didn't just wait
ahead on the trail for you, but came back to get you.

A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday,
August 29, 2023, at St. Andrew's Catholic Church in Brainerd.  Family
and friends are invited to gather one hour prior to services and enjoy a
luncheon after.  Interment will take place at Hillside Cemetery.
