Donna Rogene (Carter) Brown, 89, passed away at home surrounded by family on Sept. 27, 2023.

She was born Jan. 25, 1934, in Valley Center to Mable (Fanning) and Elzava Carter.  A resident of Kingman since 1972, Donna was the Kingman County Clerk for twenty years and another four years as the first female commissioner in Kingman County.

She lived her life to serve others and was respected by many.  She and her husband Don were well known for the Christmas Display built by Don and placed on their property.  Hundreds of vehicles drove through the circle drive every year to enjoy it.

Donna also enjoyed playing the slot machines with her children.  She was known for her luck in winning small jackpots from time to time and would call the kids not with her to let them know.

On Dec.  17, 1971, she married Donald E. Brown; he died Nov. 25, 2008.  Survivors include children Terry (Lynn) Nelson,  Linda (Brad) Oller, Darla (Rhonda) Rowley; and Keith Brown; grandchildren Angela, Alesha, Kara, TJ, Robyn, Josh and Jerome; 16 great-grandchildren; sisters Bonnie House, Karen Williams; and brother Robert Carter.  She was also preceded in death by brothers Bill, Jim and Larry; sisters Beulah Rader, Betty Jo Kennedy, Flo Ann Davis and Mary Pruitt; and great-granddaughter Haley Sue Arensdorf.
