Jerry Vaun Schreuder, 78, of Boise, died Saturday, July 23, 2016 at his home of natural causes. Arrangements are under the direction of Cremation Society of Idaho. Jerry V. Schreuder died peacefully at home on July 23, 2016 in Boise, Idaho with family by his side after a six year battle with multiple myeloma. Jerry was born on Oct. 15, 1937 in Huntley, Montana. Jerry began playing his saxophone in bands in Yellowstone County at the age of 13. He had his own band, The Sugar Beet Band - the band with the sweet beat, at the age of 15. He graduated from Huntley Project High School. He attended the University of Montana and graduated with a Bachelor of Music in 1958 and married Ruth Ann Christiansen. He received his Masters of Arts in Music from Washington State University in 1965 and started teaching music in Belt, Montana. After three years, he moved to Fort Benton, MT where he developed the band and choral department at the high school which repeatedly received high honors and for which he developed life-long friends. He moved to Burlington, Washington with his family in 1965 and taught Band for 23 years followed by Humanities, English, and Journalism before his retirement in 1993. He also enjoyed time as President of Burlington Edison Education Association and the San Juan Music Educators. In 1988 he married his wife, Doreen, and they retired from teaching in 1993. They thoroughly enjoyed their years working on their fresh market vegetable farm called “Secret Garden”, and traveling extensively in the off season. His passion for music remained active and he enjoyed his jazz trio, being a member of the North Cascades Band, as well as directing the big band, Skagit Swings. His favorite instruments were the tenor saxophone and the bassoon. One of the highlights of his playing career was being a featured soloist in Rotary International’s Memorial 9 / 11 Concert in 2011 and 2012 at McIntyre Hall in Mount Vernon. He enjoyed teaching students music, philosophy and literature. He took great satisfaction meeting former students around the Skagit Valley to discuss their ideas and appreciated the visits, cards, and e-mails from former students over the past six years. He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Doreen; children, Lee (Karen) Schreuder, Christian (Woo Chun) Schreuder, and Laura (Carlton) Steele; and step-children, Mark (Jon) Maakestad and Kirsten (Eric) Deutsch; plus grandchildren, Annika and Cody Steele and Emory, Elsa, and Annika Deutsch; and a brother, Dorwin Schreuder in Bozeman, Montana. He was preceded in death by his young daughter, Jane; and his parents, Jake and Edith Schreuder. A celebration of Jerry’s life will be held in September in Skagit County, Washington. The family would like to thank Skagit Regional Health Cancer Care, MSTI, St. Luke’s Hospice, and Bright Star for their compassionate care of Jerry. At Jerry’s request, in lieu of flowers, memorials can be sent to Seattle Children’s Hospital.
