Jerry was born to Herbert and Berdella Schueller on February 5, 1958. He grew up in Primghar along with his five siblings, and graduated from Primghar High school in 1976. Jerry earned his associate’s degree from Iowa Lakes Community College and later his bachelor’s degree in education from Buena Vista College. He was self employed as a truck driver and farmer at the time of his death.
Jerry married Deb Mudder in 1978, and together they raised three children. He was the proud, loving protector of his two sons, Travis (Kristin) Schueller of Armstrong, and Joseph (Brook) Schueller of Spencer; and his daughter, Katie (Cole) Leiding of Primghar.
He was a collector of all things, especially cars, spare parts, Green Bay Packer gear and margarine containers. He loved a good bargain for himself, but would spare no expense for others.
Lastly, the title he genuinely loved the most was “Papa” to his grandchildren -- Kale, Ava, Landyn, Macie, Knox, Laythe, Ella and Avery.
He is survived by his wife, Deb, of Primghar; his sons, Travis (Kristin) and Joe (Brook); daughter Katie (Cole); 8 grandchildren; his father, Herb Schueller of Primghar; his siblings, Pauleen (Ambrose) Peitzmier of West Point NE, Pat (Don) Enger of Sanborn, Ron (Dian) Schueller of Sanborn, Paul Schueller of Primghar, and Glen Schueller of Primghar; his mother-in-law, Mae Mudder of Watertown, SD, brother-in-law Gary Mudder of Watertown, SD; and many nieces and nephews.
Jerry was preceded in death by his mother, Berdella Schueller; his father-in-law, John Mudder; and his nieces, Amy Peitzmeier, Nancy Rase, and Jennifer Enger.
