Ozella Piggee Snowden

Ozella Piggee Snowden was born on June 21, 1945 in Okolona, Arkansas to Thurman Piggee and Parthena Heard Piggee. She accepted Christ at a tender age and attended Richmond Hill School and Peake High School in Arkadelphia.   

Ozella was a homemaker and loved being in the company of her family and friends. She never met a stranger and always offered words of encouragement and was often sought for wisdom.  She loved to shop and take pictures. Ozella was the family picture collector and made sure that everyone had their picture taken.

She was a member of Piney Grove Baptist Church was she was active with the choir. In her spare time, she enjoyed listening to gospel music and the blues.

Ozella was preceded in death by her husband, Samuel David Snowden; siblings, Wilbert Piggee, George Piggee, Thurman Piggee, Jr., Edna Booker, Ella Mae Beavers, Odell Piggee and David Piggee.

She leaves to cherish her memory four children, Samuel D.
