Her parents were C.W. and Minnie Spencer LaRue and was the sixth of seven children who grew to adulthood. Her mother, Minnie, died early in 1932. In Margie's early years, she attended many different public schools in eastern Oklahoma as her father moved often where jobs were available.

The business was originally owned by Orgel and Orville Talkington. Later in October, 1948, second son, Dennis, was born in Anadarko, OK.
