I'm going to miss my Aunt Bill. Over the years I've had many a phone calls. I'd catch her off guard sometimes and the best one was when i called, she answered and I said 'Billie Faye Schumacher?' She replied 'Yes' I said 'I'm calling to confirm that you have been excepted to appear on the 'Judge Judy Program'' There was this dead silence and I couldn't hold it any longer. I laughed so hard. Then she laughed and told me that her dentist teased her by saying he was going to get her on that show. It was a great laugh. She had a great sense of humor and was so incredibly smart. These past few years I made it a point to call at least 2 - 3 times a month just to say hi and listen to her tell me stories. I'm really going to miss her and am greatful for all those phone conversations we had.

To Rod & the family, My sincerest condolences in the passing of my dear friend, Billie Faye. We worked closely together on the MCHD Auxiliary, the Moore County Health Foundation & the Texas Business Women. She married me & my husband, Randy at the courthouse in 1997. Although I hadn't seen her in recent years, we spoke often on the phone. She encouraged me and many women to reach for our dreams, to grow & educate ourselves that there is nothing we cannot do. God bless you, Billie Faye and hold you in His loving hand.

I have so much respect for this lovely woman! I worked for her at the lumber yard when I was in high school, and she was so kind. But what I remembered the most was that she had so much compassion for us Lusk kids. She let my brother off easy many times. I have so much admiration for her, and she will always have a special place in my heart!

I have fondest-memories of Mrs. Schumaker as I lived in Sunray until my-family moved to Dumas when I was going into the 6th-grade and then I also knew her in Dumas and First United Methodist Church. In Sunray, we liked to ride bicycles by the Schumaker's-home as they always hadz popsicles, ice cream or something sweet for each-of-us, no-matter how-many there were in-the-group. She always made us come inside, use her-telephone and call-our-mother to-be-sure it was okay for us to have whatever. We learned quickly to have a handwritten-note from our-mothers because they knew how-much she and Mr. Ernie enjoyed doing that. May God bless each-of-you in-this-time of great-loss as she-was-a fine-lady who loved everybody. Fortunately, I never encountered her as a Judge. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right-wrong or indifferent. Travel-the-pathway our Lord has for each-one as there are no-pathways, just individual-pathway He has for you. Cling tightly to His-unchangine and unfailing-hand, He will never-fail you. Keep that great-legacy she has left for you in-your-hearts.
