Obituary for Joseph "Joe" Schreier
Joe Schreier went home to be with the Lord Saturday morning, October 28, 2017 at Senior’s Delight Adult Family Home in East Wenatchee.
He was born on December 7, 1932 and grew up in Illinois. After 10 years in the Air Force, he married Dottie Merrifield - they were married 57 years. Thankfully, they were able to continue to live together while in the adult family home. They had 2 children; Ted Schreier of Albuquerque, NM, married to Felecia, with two boys; JT & Jo and Liz Scott, married to Dave of East Wenatchee, WA.
He loved racing cars and boats, and worked many years in the auto industry. He knew an engine inside and out and was known for his troubleshooting ability. His sharp mind remembered almost everything he read or learned about vehicles and aerospace. He enjoyed keeping up on national news and voraciously read books and magazines.
Joe and Dottie loved to road trip travel and go camping, they we able to live their dream of full-time RVing later in life. Their Christian faith and church family were extremely important and attended services until each were physically unable.
He will be remembered for his service to our country, his experience and love of automobiles, his proud conservative values and his quiet demeanor. Oh, and there’s that little stubborn streak….
