She was born on July 27, 1940, the daughter of Ralph G. and Junie M. Henry Smith.

Janet graduated from Clarion Limestone High School in the class of 1958.  She was married to Floyd H. O’Neil on March 19, 1960 by Rev. Rissmiller in the Grace E.C. Church in Ninevah.  This March they would have celebrated 64 years of marriage.

Janet, along with her husband, had worked at cleaning Grace E.C. Church for 38 years.  She was a member of the church and also helped teach the Sunday School Nursery Class for many years.

She was also a homemaker and enjoyed cooking meals on Thanksgiving and Christmas for her family.  She loved spending many hours in her flower garden, putting puzzles together, spending time with her family and reading her Bible.
