Billie was born to parents C.B. Doyle and Johnnie Bell Doyle in Palo Pinto County, where she was raised. She married Travis Tidwell in 1945, and celebrated 53 years of marriage, prior to his passing. They lived in West Texas, moved to the Dallas Fort Worth area in the late 60s and settled in Bedford, Texas in the early 1980s, where they remained for many years. They had three children and raised a family. As a family many fond memories were made with fishing trips, visiting family, and vacations. Billie enjoyed reading, and was involved in book clubs, Mahjong group, and enjoyed participating in activities with her church's Sunday School Group. Billie and Travis were long time members of Cross City First Euless. To Billie, her family was always a priority. Not only her immediate family, but her extended family always meant so much to her. She always opened the doors of her home, and welcomed any family member in times of transition. She was an avid gardener, enjoyed crafting and gathering collector's items. Beloved mother, sister, grandmother and great-grandmother will be dearly missed.
