Audrey was born December 3, 1933 to Grace Smith and Alvin Wesley Gambill in Snow Hill, Arkansas.

Billy Jack Doggett and Audrey met on a blind date and were married March 10, 1961 in Tyler. Together they loved to host friends at their home, attend church gatherings, volunteer, travel, play tennis and enjoy sporting events and TJC Theatrical productions.

Audrey worked at Tyler Junior College from 1957 to 1964 and later taught 2nd grade at Birdwell Elementary in Tyler. She loved children and was a well loved teacher and mentor to many who knew her. Audrey was a faithful member of the Glenwood Church of Christ for almost 40 years where she was active in Children’s Sunday School, Ladies’ Bible Class and Senior’s ministry.

Audrey served for Meals on Wheels many years and often took her granddaughters with her for deliveries. The Salvation Army was close to Audrey’s heart in recent years. She loved working with the Women’s Auxiliary at the Garage Sale and helping with the Angel Tree during Christmas.
