Funeral services for Linda Hinds Riendeau, 64, of Kempner, will be at 10 a.m. Monday at the First Baptist Church in Copperas Cove with Dr. Mark Kemp officiating. Graveside services will follow at 3:30 p.m. in Red Springs.

Mrs. Riendeau died June 5, 2013, at her home. She was born Nov. 14, 1948, in Denver, Colo., to the late George and Dorothy (Schnatz) Burkhalter. She graduated from Lakewood High School in Colorado and moved to Texas to attend Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene where she met and married Carl Hinds.

Their two children, Lori and Freddy, were born during his military career, which included service locations in Germany and throughout the U.S.

In 1990, they were assigned to Fort Hood, where she remained, settling in Copperas Cove. She worked at First National Bank and later as the church secretary at First Baptist Church in Copperas Cove where she has been a faithful member ever since. Her pastimes included singing in the church choir, gardening and reading.

Throughout her life, she maintained an interest in art. As an aficionado of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture and Tiffany glass, she made numerous trips throughout the U.S. to see various collections.

With a quiet, gentle disposition, she was a selfless and caring mother and friend. On Jan. 5, 2013, she married Pete Riendeau of Kempner.

Survivors include her husband, Pete Riendeau; her children, Lori Root and her husband, Lee, of Colorado Springs, Colo., and Freddy Hinds of Richardson; and her sister, Susan Folsom of Lake Mary, Fla.

Visitation is from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday at Scott’s Funeral Home in Copperas Cove, which is in charge of arrangements.
