Donna married Eugene Brown and faithfully followed him around the world as he served his country in the U. S. Army. Some of her favorite pastimes included sewing, embroidery, and scratching lotto tickets. She also liked cooking, gardening, photography, and all types of puzzles that she called her “brain teasers.”
