Margie's parents divorced when she was very small, so there was hard times, and several moves. At age five, they moved to Oklahoma City, OK where Margie started school.

There, she rode to school on a bus, where in the driver's seat sat a handsome sixteen year old named Alvin Snowden, who was also an outstanding basketball player. On October 12, 1934 Margie Belle and Alvin were married in Sayre, OK and raised five children.

Margie Belle was a wonderful cook and famous for her pecan pies. She loved canning and making jelly, most of which she gave away. She was very generous, loving, and always had a smile. She later worked as a waitress at Hamburger King and Cal's Cafe where she inherited the nickname "Sunshine". She also worked at the Oklahoma Information Center.

In 1987, Margie began performing as "Minnie Pearl". She performed for Roy Rogers and Dale Evans in their California home and also the Lieutenant Governor of Oklahoma and countless other events.

She spent her life serving others including her large family, her church, and anyone who needed encouragement. They were all precious to her and she enjoyed making them laugh.

Margie Belle was preceded in death by her husbands, Alvin Snowden, Herbert Oren, and Roy Fowler; one grandson, Jamie Munford; and son-in-law Harold Hugg.
