Donna C Brown, 75, of Verndale, passed away at the Fairview Hospital  in Minneapolis surrounded by her family.

Donna was born to Harry and May (Huntington) Snook on January 02, 1946 in Parkers Prairie, MN. She was married to Charles Brown, in Las Vegas. Donna was a very hard worker. She worked as a caregiver and nurses aid for over 30 years along with working on the farm, and she never missed a day of work. In her free time Donna enjoyed riding four-wheelers, camping, and campfires. In her older years, Donna never let her age define her. After retirement she continued working at the Staples Express and spent her time dancing, and sewing many quilts and rugs. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

She is survived her son Floyd; daughter Carla; 7 grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren with another expected in September; and sisters Ethel and Marcella.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Charlie; four brothers; five sisters; and mother-in-law Dora.
