Donna Jean Koford Brown, passed away Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at the age of 92. She was born November 25, 1928 in Tremonton, Utah to Vaughn & Marr Ellis Koford. The family moved to Grantsville, Utah in 1941. She attended Grantsville High School and graduated in 1946. She married Jack M. Brown on October 26, 1947, and their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple on September 3, 1954. Donna was involved in the Dairy Wives Association, and was over the Dairy Princess pageant for several years. She belonged to various clubs including Beta Sigma Phi, Twentieth Century, and Jonathan Club, where she served the community. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints serving in many positions. The last calling that she had and dearly loved, was that of ward librarian. She loved to cook and bake and spend time in the kitchen. She worked for several years at the old Skyline Restaurant baking rolls and pies. She was an excellent cook, and you could always expect goodies when you came to her house, and no one ever left hungry. She fixed many meals for the men hauling hay on their farm. One of our favorite memories at Christmas time was her homemade candy and chocolates. Her sisters and mom would gather at her house to hand dip their chocolates because her basement was cold and the chocolate was very temperamental. She continued to dip even after moving to Idaho for several more years, having Jack stir the chocolate to melt it. In 1978 Donna & Jack moved to Weiser, Idaho where she resided until 2016. After breaking her hip, she came back to Grantsville to live with her daughter & son-in-law. She loved to sew and quilt. Every grandchild received a baby quilt and a large quilt when they graduated from high school. She was a very talented lady and her family was her whole life. Donna is survived by her children Greg (Donna), Gary (Ann) of Weiser, Idaho, and Denise (Todd) Fawson of Grantsville. Sisters Evelyn Brown, Lois Young, Maxine Allred, and Raylynn Jeffrey. 12 grandchildren and 29 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Jack, her parents and her brother Eldon Koford.
