Joseph "Joe" F. Schollmeyer, Jr.

Joseph “Joe” F. Schollmeyer, Jr., age 85 of Taos, passed away, Friday, November 19, 2021, at Capital Region Medical Center in Jefferson City.

Joe was born September 20, 1936, in Chamois, a son to the late Joseph F. Schollmeyer, Sr., and Legora (Straub) Schollmeyer.

He was a 1955 graduate of Chamois High School.

On May 27, 1961, he was united in marriage to Mary Ann Haslag at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Loose Creek. She survives at their home. He was known by his family, friends and business clients as “Joe.”

Joe was the owner/operator of Schollmeyer Petroleum Service since 1983. Throughout his long career, Joe built so many strong business relationships that he valued greatly. He had a tremendous work ethic which he valued and enjoyed. His life ended unexpectedly while on the job in the midst of several customers. His early years growing up on the family farm near Chamois instilled a “can do” work ethic that defined who he was and how he and Mary Ann raised their four children. Beyond his work, he loved being outside gardening, doing lawn work and going to auctions.

He was a member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Taos and the Taos Knights of Columbus Council.

In addition to his spouse of 60 years, Joe is survived by: two sons, Allen Schollmeyer and his wife Sandra of Jefferson City and Mark Schollmeyer and his wife Patti of Blue Springs; two daughters, Dolores Schollmeyer of Taos and Darla Snellen and her husband Rick of Jefferson City; seven grandchildren, Blake Schollmeyer, Bryant Schollmeyer, Brooks Schollmeyer, Bryce Schollmeyer, Grace Schollmeyer, Zachary Schollmeyer, and Maria Schollmeyer, and several nieces, nephews and friends.

In addition to his parents, Joe was preceded in death by: two sisters, Margaret Ann Talken and her husband Gilbert Talken and Catherine Linzmaier.

Visitation will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 23, 2021, at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Taos. Mass of Christian Burial will follow at 11:00 a.m. with Fr. Michael Penn as the Celebrant. Interment will be in the St. Francis Xavier Parish Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made to St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church or Jefferson City Animal Shelter.

I was so sad to hear about Mr. Schollmeyer. I had just had a lengthy conversation with him last Thursday. He could always make me laugh in the most unexpected ways. I told him that his work ethic was a dying breed. I've worked at Mid-South Steel for 33 years and Mr. Schollmeyer has always been a part of it. I will miss him greatly.
