Carlene Dawn Brown, 22, was tragically taken from this world on August 16, 2022 within her home in Worland, Wyoming while carrying her son Colin Michael Brown. She was born to Donald Christian Brown and Andrea Michelle (Buchanan) on April 4, 2000 in Worland, Wyoming. She was the light of all that knew her. One of her friends stated that when life gave her lemons, she’d make lemonade. Carlene graduated from Basin High School in 2019. She was very athletic, enjoyed school and helping cheer on her fellow classmates. After her daughter was born, she became a Riverside Rebels Volleyball player and excelled at it. She loved dancing ballet, singing in the choir, playing flute in the band, and managing the girls’ basketball team. She was a great actress in all the drama club plays. Carlene bravely faced all the trials that life gave her. Carlene always had a smile on her face and was willing and ready to help anyone that was in need. She was a wonderful mother. One of the highlights of her life was becoming a Manderson Volunteer Firefighter for a year and a half. She never backed down from a challenge. Even though people ridiculed her for it, she would rescue cats and dogs and would do everything she could to keep an infant cat alive even if she knew it wouldn’t survive.
Carlene is preceded in death by her great grandmother, Audrey J. Brown, grandmother, Dawn Buchanan and step-father, Stephen Smerker. Carlene was accompanied to heaven with her unborn son, Colin Michael Brown. She is survived by her father, Donald (Rose) Brown of Basin, Wyoming; mother, Andrea Brown Smerker of Worland; sister Audrey Jean Brown of Worland; daughter, Chelsea Rebecca Crait; grandparents, Randy and Carlene Brown and Colin Buchanan, Uncle Gerry Brown, Aunt Jude Buchanan, and many more great aunts and uncles, cousins and other family too numerous to name.
