ALICE MARIE BACHMAYER
GONZALES - Alice Marie Bachmayer, 79, of Gonzales, passed away Thursday, July 25, 2013. Alice was born October 6, 1933 in Corpus Christi to Andrew Anderson Rankin and Nellie McCoy Rankin. Alice married Glen R. Bachmayer in November of 1985 in Corpus Christi. She was a member of the Ladies Study Club and the Episcopal Church of the Messiah in Gonzales.
Alice was a voracious reader, she loved to sew and she found joy in sewing dolls, dresses, quilting and knitting. She was a marvelous cook and enjoyed being a part of her children's lives rather then a spectator. She was enthusiastically involved in PTA, Little League and many of her children's functions. She doted lovingly on her grandchildren and endeared herself to them as a testament of the beauty of a grandmother's love.
Alice was very proud of her family's heritage. Her great grandfather mined salt from the Laguna Madre and transported the salt to the salt mill near Colonel Kenney's Trading Post, an area which is now known as Corpus Christi, Texas.
Alice is survived by her husband Glen R. Bachmayer of Gonzales, daughters, Victoria Nell Cochran of Corpus Christi, Amy Amanda Hatmaker of Victoria, son, Andrew Myer Hatmaker of Corpus Christi, grandchildren, Sarah Loveless, Seth Hatmaker, Aaron Cochran, Harold Hatmaker, Hannah Moss, Gus Moss, and Krystal Cochran and 5 great-grandchildren. Alice was preceded in death by her parents, daughter, Susan Hatmaker, son, Harold D. Hatmaker, Jr., and granddaughter, Jamie.
