Jenny was born May 24, 1946, in Moline, IL, daughter of James and Betty (Samuelson) Holmes. She married Larry McNeal on September 16, 1967 in East Moline, IL.

Jenny was a graduate of the Rock Island School of Nursing. She went on to be a nurse at the former Lutheran Hospital, Moline, IL, serving first in the obstetrics unit and then in the surgical unit. After leaving Lutheran Hospital, she took a position as the Director of Child Evangelism Fellowship from 1997 through 2010. Jenny then, along with her husband, spent two years at Camp Good News in Washington, IL. She spent many years as a Sunday school teacher as well as a youth group leader for Wildwood Church, always inspiring the lives of so many children and young adults. She loved traveling around the world with the youth groups, serving in outreach ministry programs and helping those in need. Jenny's other enjoyments included camping, knitting, crafting, reading and sewing. Jenny's inspiration and compassion for others will truly be missed by all that knew her.
