Donna Wilson Brown, age 70, was called to her heavenly home after a three-year battle with cancer on Monday, January 13, 2020 at Caldwell Hospice. A native of McDowell County, Donna was born on January 27, 1949 to the late Elbert and Rachel McCormick Wilson.


Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, Bobby Joe Brown and her son, Bobby Joe Brown, Jr.
