Obituary for Mrs. Ressie Doggett
Ressie Vione Doggett, age 96, of Center Texas passed away,Wed, Feb. 3 rd , 2021.
She was born Feb.20 th 1924 in Fellowship Community near Joaquin Tx.

A private funeral graveside service was held Feb.8 th ,2021 at Good Hope Cemetery in Center Texas.
After accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior in 1942 at the age of 18 her life was devoted to
serving the Lord by serving others. Whether it was in her church which she joined in late 50’s or in the
community she was always concerned about those in need. She met her husband Alvis Paul Doggett
before World War 11 began, they became engaged before he left to serve and when he returned they
married. As her witnessing to him thru her life his life changed and in 1956 he was saved and began his
life along side her helping others and serving in the same church. They were married for 58 yrs before he
passed in 2003. Even until the very end of her life though she was physically unable to serve others she
would always be repeating” Lord send some soul to me today that I might witness to them” or telling
everyone that she saw “I need to get out and help someone.”
She was devoted Christain, Wife, Mother and demonstrated it every day. God blessed her with a green
thumb and we always said she could take a dry stick put it in a jar of water and have blooms within a
week. She loved working in her garden, trimming her pots of flowers she had everywhere and sharing her
knowledge of how to raise them with all who sought it from her.
She was a member of Lone Star Baptist church in Center,Tx for close to 70yrs and served as Treasurer
for 15yrs. Sunday School Teacher until the point her mind was failing. Even at the closing of her life she
loved it when ladies from her Sunday school class and other ladies from church who came to visit her
even though she could not remember their names. Sunday mornings would still look forward to setting in
front of tv and listening to the Sunday morning sermons.
