Doris Lee (Heine) Rinderknecht, age 92, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, October 25, 2020.

Doris was born to Clement Charles and Theresia Bachmayer Heine on August 29th, 1928 and was the oldest of three children. Doris graduated from Coupland High School, followed by a year at Texas State University (formerly Southwest Texas State Teachers College). Shortly after the end of WWII she met a handsome fellow name Lincoln William Rinderknecht and they were married in 1946.

Doris and Lincoln lived in Taylor, Texas where Doris worked for the Lonestar Gas Company. After one year, they settled in Coupland, Texas, where they made their home, farmed the land, and grew their family.

In addition to helping run the family farm and raising their 3 children, she was a substitute teacher and volunteered as a 4H leader, Catholic Daughter, and on the St. Mary’s Church Altar Society.

She was also engaged in many social activities, surrounding herself with many friends. She was an original member of the Coupland 42 Club, loved her ladies’ trips to Louisiana and enjoyed cruising to new destinations with family.

As many knew, Doris was an avid gardener. Her fresh vegetables and canned goods, especially her dill pickles and beets, were loved by all.

There are many names that Doris went by but the one title she was most proud of was “Granny”. Even if you were not a grandchild of Doris, you knew her as Granny. She was the ever-present Granny supporting both family and friends at sporting events, school programs or whatever was important to you. She would travel all over Texas during the holidays or special occasions because she knew she was an important part of that celebration.

Doris is preceded in death by her parents, a baby brother, her husband, and her son, Lonny Rinderknecht (Debra). She is survived by her sister, LaVerne Eulenfeld (Bobby), sister-in-laws, Janie Freeborn & Elfie Rinderknecht, son, Ronny Rinderknecht (Susan), daughter-in-law, Debra Rinderknecht, daughter, Becky Krueger (Dan), seven grandchildren, Audrey Standlee (Keith), Reagan Kinnear (Andrew), Kyle Rinderknecht (Jennice), Dusty Bakke (John), Raeley Guess (Aaron), Amy Gutierrez (Victor), Kirby Krueger, fourteen great-grandchildren, with one more on the way, and many beloved cousins, nieces and nephews.

Viewing at Condra Funeral Home in Taylor will be held on Thursday October 29th, noon to 5p and Friday October 30th from 8:00a to noon.

Due to COVID-19 protocol there will be a limited visitation with the family on Friday, October 30th from 1:00p to 2:00p at St. Mary’s Catholic Church.

Immediately following the visitation, a family funeral service will be held at St. Mary's Catholic Church. The family will then attend a private burial at Taylor City Cemetery.

Serving as pallbearers will be Kyle Rinderknecht, Victor Gutierrez, Aaron Guess, John Bakke, Keith Standlee, Dean Corbett, Jeff Rinderknecht, Mike Rinderknecht, and Ricky Rinderknecht. Honorary pallbearers are Dan Krueger, Andrew Kinnear, Brad Peterson and Dan Brinda.

The Rinderknecht family would like to thank The Aleman Family and everyone at the S.P.J.S.T Assisted Living for the wonderful love and care they gave to Doris.

In lieu of flowers please consider a memorial in Doris’ name to St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Taylor, Texas.

Dearest Becky and Ronnie and all your family and friends who were special in Doris’ life. She was a beautiful, loving, classy lady who I admired deeply. She and my momma were not only close cousins but friends too. We all were pretty involved in our “Bachmayer “ family lives when younger throwing massive birthday parties with all the cousins. Special times and memories. I always enjoyed talking with Doris at family gatherings as she was a wealth of family information and memories! Her beautiful, smiling face will be missed, but I imagine she’s smiling a little brighter now that she is with Lincoln and Lonnie and her sweet parents, Aunt Tracey and Uncle Clement. I pray you keep her close in your heart with your beautiful memories you shared, Love, hugs and prayers, Nancy
