Jimmie Wilcox Doggett was born on February 17, 1923, to Corbie and Bessie (Goodman) Wilcox at her grandparents' home in Mart, Texas. She lived with her maternal grandparents during her early years to attend school, but returned each summer to her parent's remote farm established in 1890 in Mills County. Mrs. Doggett was the oldest of nine children.

Jimmie married Noble Elroy Doggett on July 1, 1939. The Doggett family moved to Weatherford in 1955 after years of following construction jobs. In Weatherford, Mrs. Doggett ensured her seven children were actively involved at North Side Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School for many years. Mrs. Doggett served as James Bowie Elementary School's PTA President and was continuously motivated in fund raisers and school activities. Education was stressed to her children as she provided private tutoring to various students of all ages.

Jimmie Doggett strived to instill self-assurance to each child by proving goals could be accomplished through hard work. She remodeled her beloved home countless times, reupholstered furniture, sewed for her family, and constantly created hand craft items for birthday and Christmas gifts.

Her first job outside her home was for the Palace Theater. As the youngest child, Robert, matured, she began working at Beall's Department Store. She taught herself to type, accompanied with her natural understanding of math skills; she became the Credit Manager for Sears and later Western Auto until her retirement.
