“‘Just look, the beautiful curtains!’ that’s what my mother said when we were driving in the car, and then we hit the curb,” son Wolfgang remembers with a smile his mother, who died on Friday, October 28, at the age of 84.

Her talent for interior design was certainly inherited from the dedicated Eferding native, since as the daughter of master wallpaperer Franz Kammerer she was surrounded by all these activities in the workshop every day. Originally, however, her career aspiration was to become a music teacher. However, when her two brothers Franz and Karl did not want to take over their father’s business, the then young woman passed the apprenticeship and master craftsman’s examination in the upholstery and bedding production trade and took over his father’s business in 1974.

From the original saddlery, which her grandfather Ignaz Kammerer founded in 1914, a modern interior decorator arose through the talent and charm of the young boss at the address in front of the Linzertor in Eferding. “My mother had a very special feeling for design. Whenever someone needed her advice, she came over with the most beautiful curtains and carpets. I have to say: I always admired my mother,” says son Wolfgang, who founded the shop in 1996 took over from his mother.

First city councilor of Eferding

Over the years, Rosa Doplbauer developed a very special passion for art and culture, having been a soprano soloist in the David Choir and the Catholic Church Choir for decades.

It was only a matter of time before she was sworn in as Eferding’s first female city councilor on April 27, 1989 and thus shaped Eferding’s economic and cultural life for more than 30 years. “I still remember it well: She came home from the shop in the evening, changed her clothes, put on her make-up and half an hour later she gave a speech at an event – without much preparation. That was her great talent,” says her son.

But Rosa Doplbauer also had to cope with one or two strokes of fate in her life. When her eldest daughter Doris died in 2003, she took on the role of confidant for her grandchildren. The sudden death of her husband in 2015, with whom she had been happily married for more than 50 years, also took a toll on the cheerful Eferding native. “Despite everything, my mother always approached life with a smile,” says Wolfgang Doplbauer, who received a very special present from his mother for his 50th birthday: a personal poem that still moves him deeply. “It was also a gift from my mother.”

In the presence of her loved ones, Rosa Doplbauer passed away peacefully at her home on October 28. “We also laid her out in the workshop, all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were there. It was a very nice, albeit emotional, moment for the family.” The farewell will take place next Thursday, November 10, in the parish church of Eferding. Rosa Doplbauer will be buried in the family grave at the Catholic cemetery.
