Janis was born February 15, 1948 in Mattoon. She married Glen Neal on August 30, 1969 in Fairfield, and they have enjoyed over 51 years of marriage.

Janis was a simple woman, who put her family first. Her cooking skills could not be topped, especially her stuffing, noodles, and chocolate chip cookies.

She and Glen enjoyed dining out with friends at Golden Corral, and taking rides through the country to look for deer. Of all Janis interests and hobbies, being home and spending time with Glen was where she was most content.

She was preceded in death by her father, John Cribelar; and her son, Scott Neal.

Janis is survived by her husband, Glen Neal; daughters, Lisa (husband, Robert) Blades, and Kerry (husband, Paul) Vaughn; son, Bryan (wife, Kim) Neal; and several grandchildren.
