John “Herb” Schrom, 90

John “Herb” Schrom went home to eternity early Friday morning, May 24, in Boise, Idaho. Herb was born August 21, 1928 on the family farm three miles north of Grangeville, to parents Carl and Chloe.  He had two brothers (Frank and Marv), and two sisters (Louise and Lucille).

After completing high school, he joined the Marine Corps and served during the Korean conflict. Upon his return to Grangeville he began his career at the Post Office, starting as a carrier, moving inside as a clerk, then working as the assistant postmaster, and retiring as the postmaster.

Herb loved the outdoors and enjoyed driving in the mountains.  His hobbies included gardening, hunting, fishing, and bowling.

He was a faithful husband to his wife Georgia for over 50 years, and upon her death married MaryAnn, whom he dearly loved over the last 11 1/2 years.  He was a great dad and example to his two sons Deral and Ken.

Most of all Herb loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was a long-time member of Grangeville Christian Church, serving as a deacon, elder, Sunday School teacher, and board member.  His dedication and commitment are Christ-like examples to all who knew him.

A viewing will be held Friday, May 31, 2019 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Blackmer Funeral Home, Grangeville. A celebration of Herb’s Life will be held at Grangeville Christian Church, Saturday, June 1, at 10:30 AM, with interment at Prairie View cemetery. Arrangements are under the direction of the Blackmer Funeral Home, Grangeville. You may submit condolences online to

    Herb will be missed greatly by myself for his caring nature, adoring smile and his sense of caring towards others. I bowled with him at the state tournament and we placed on the board and he was especially happy to remember that time with me. My condolences to the Schrom family .
