    HOUSTON, TX - Jill Douglass-Schumacher of Houston, Texas passed away on Monday, August 31, 2020 in Houston after four years of courageously battling numerous health conditions.

Jill was born on June 19, 1939 in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and is preceded in death by her parents, Donald Douglass and Bland MacGillivray.

Jill grew up in Newport News, Virginia and attended Muhlenberg College where she met Bob, the love of her life. They were married the following year in Ft. McNair, Washington, DC and happily spent the next 60 years together.

Jill had four sons who were her pride and joy, and she was blessed with five grandchildren whom she adored.

 
 
 
 
  Jill loved children and she loved education. After being a stay-at-home mom for 15 years, Jill returned to college to proudly obtain her degree from the University of Houston at the age of 40. She then became a teacher, and she taught elementary through high school-aged children in several Houston school districts as well as in McAllen, Texas. Teaching was her passion and she happily taught and positively touched the lives of many students for twenty-one years until she retired.

Jill is survived by her husband Bob, her son, Scott, his wife, Lisa, and their children: Ross, Lonna, and Alec of Belleville; her son, Todd of Houston; her son, Thomas, his wife, Lisa, and their daughter, Eliza of Spring, and her son, Timothy, his wife, Kelly and their son, Trent also of Spring. She is also survived by her brother, Roderick MacGillivray of Williamsburg, Virginia and her sister, Sally St. George of Allentown, Pennsylvania, and many more relatives and close friends.

Another one of Jill's passions was the Christmas season. She loved the holiday so much she started preparing months before December arrived. There will not be a public service.

Jill was a wonderful teacher and colleague. I met Jill at Nikki Rowe HS. One of the sweetest teachers that our students were fortunate to know. My condolences to her entire family and all her friends. She lives on in all of your hearts and memories.

I was sorry to hear about Jill. I was in the same English class with her at NNHS. When I took my wife to Houston for cancer treatment, Jill contacted me and offered us some help. I thought we would get the chance to meet up, but busy schedules prevented that. May our Lord provide peace and ease the pain Jill's family now feels for her loss.

Loved going to the Schumacher home at Christmas time. Jill always told me to start decorating in October. She was right! Great teacher for the students at Brown Middle School. Prayers for the family.

Lead On, O King Eternal

Words by Ernest W. Shurtleff (04 Apr 1862 - 24 Aug 1917), 1888
Music (Lancashire) by Henry T. Smart (26 Oct 1813 - 06 July 1879), 1836

Shurtleff wrote this hymn wrote this hymn for the graduation ceremony at Andover Theological Seminary, where he was a member of the class of 1888.

 Lead on, O King eternal,
The day of march has come;
Henceforth in fields of conquest
Thy tents shall be our home:
Through days of preparation
Thy grace has made us strong,
And now, O King eternal,
We lift our battle song.

Lead on, O King eternal,
Till sin's fierce war shall cease,
And Holiness shall whisper
The sweet amen of peace;
For not with swords loud clashing,
Nor roll of stirring drums,
But deeds of love and mercy,
The heav'nly kingdom comes.

Lead on, O King eternal,
We follow, not with fears;
For gladness breaks like morning
Where'er thy face appears;
Thy cross is lifted o'er us;
We journey in its light:
The crown awaits the conquest;
Lead on, O God of might.
