Donna Veal Brown was born on August 16, 1963 in Bastrop County, Texas to loving parents Sam Veal, Jr. and Doris Mae Veal. The ninth child of 14 children, Donna grew up in the close-knit community of Hills Prairie. She accepted Christ as her savior at an early age and was baptized by the late John Glasco, former pastor of the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church. Later in 1981, Donna graduated from Bastrop High School worked in various positions throughout her adult life. On August 15, 2003, Donna united in marriage to Anthony Brown, also of Bastrop, Texas. Donna’s strong sense of family made her a model helpmate and homemaker.
Donna excelled in her roles as a loving and faithful wife, stepmother, Godmother, daughter, sister, aunt, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, friend, neighbor and most especially a Christian called to use her talents in service to the Lord.
