DAVENPORT -- Marion "King" Davenport 1929 - 2007 King was born in Kansas and raised in Kansas and Iowa. He met Gretchen in 1953 on return from the Korean War. They married 6 months later and started their family of 3 girls. King served his country proudly in the Korean War. In 1985 he renewed many of those military connections and started the 765th army reunion that has continued to meet annually since. Those friendships meant so much to him and Gretchen over the last 22 years. King worked as a machinist for General Electric until his retirement in 1989. King and his wife, Gretchen, had an ongoing "Taco Tuesday" lunch date with good friend, Rosie Cox, that continued after Gretchen's death. Rosie's faithful friendship was appreciated by both King and his family. King was preceded in death by the love of his life, Gretchen, just 4 short months ago. As King said many times, "Her death left a hole in my heart," that he never recovered from. King was also preceded in death by his mother, Myrta Eklund. Surviving him are his daughters, Valerie Smith and husband, Jerry of Los Lunas, Victoria Farris and husband, Neil of Idaho, and Judy Brooks and husband, Mark of Los Lunas; sister, Myrna Davidson of Washington; four grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. King will be buried in Oklahoma at a future date with his wife, Gretchen at the same time. King was a man of integrity. He would often say, "A man's word was as good as his handshake." If you were fortunate to have been on the other end of that handshake, you could be guaranteed he would follow through to his word. In the quiet of one morning at the hospital at 3 a.m., to his daughter King said, "I gave her (the world) hell as long as I could." We were so glad you did and will be greatly missed. King's family will receive friends for light refreshments at Grace Fellowship, 3384 Hwy 47 in Los Lunas, from 1-2 p.m. on Monday, May 14, 2007 (King's birthday). In lieu of flowers, King's request was that you send flowers to a significant person in your life, to let them know they are loved and appreciated. You don't want to miss that opportunity that may never come again.

DIGNEO -- Edward M. Digneo died at home on Wednesday afternoon, May 8, 2007. He was 94. His loving wife, Stella Ellen Blanchard Digneo, preceded him in death in 2001. The most cherished 42 years of his life were with her. Edward is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Bernadette Marie Digneo and Bill Gould; son and daughter-in-law, Vincent Edward and Nicole Watson Digneo; his brother, Robert Digneo; cousin, Ralph Digneo; and many nieces and nephews. Edward was born in Santa Fe on January 24, 1913 to Americo and Margaret Berardinelli Digneo, whose descendants were commissioned to Santa Fe in the mid-1800s by Archbishop Lamy to architect, engineer, and build many local, historically registered buildings, including the St. Francis Cathedral Basilica. He graduated from St. Michael's College (high school), the George Washington University and the University of New Mexico as an undergraduate, and attended the University of California at Berkeley where he received a Master's Degree in Biological Sciences in 1941. Within months of graduation, Edward was given a commission into the United States Navy and reported to active duty 6 months prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor. He spent a short, and self-described "intense period" on assignment in Costa Rica as one of the Navy's first environmental biologists. He served the majority of World War II in the Pacific, most notably at Midway Island, and later as a Commander on the USS Kitty Hawk. After 21 years of service, Edward retired from active duty as a decorated Lieutenant Commander and spent a few years in the Naval Reserves. In his post-Naval career, Edward co-founded an oil and gas leasing firm which he operated until the late 1970s. Along with his colleagues, he sold the business to Standard Oil in 1978. A most revered and memorable occasion came in 1951. While in Italy, Edward had the privilege of attending a private audience with Pope Pius XI. His Holiness personally greeted Edward and his small group of traveling companions, which served as a defining moment in Edward's life. He was inspired to return to the United States to play a very active voluntary role in the St. Francis Catholic Community. In the early 1970s, he helped establish shelters and provide food and clothing for many of Santa Fe's homeless. He spent nearly 20 years in active volunteer service with the St. Vincent de Paul Society and as a eucharistic minister. From an early age, Edward had a passion for drawing and painting and was recognized locally as an accomplished and prolific artist. He had many friends throughout the Santa Fe artist community and continued to paint up to a few years before his death. A Rosary will be said at Berardinelli Mortuary on Sunday evening, May 13, 2007 at 7:00 with Funeral Mass at St. Francis Cathedral Basilica on Monday, May 14, 2007 10:00 a.m. A private burial of his ashes, along side his wife's, will be held on Tuesday morning at the National Cemetery in Santa Fe. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Carmelite Monastery, 49 Mt. Carmel Rd., Santa Fe, NM 87505 or St. Vincent de Paul, 213 Cathedral Pl., Santa Fe, NM 87501. Arrangements are under the direction of Berardinelli Family Funeral Services, 1399 Luisa Street, Santa Fe, NM, 87505. (505) 984-8600.
