Jannett Walker McNealy was the third child of Rev. and Mrs. R. C. Walker born October 11, 1907. Rev. Walker was appointed to Metropolitan AME Church, Austin, Texas in 1918. Jannett McNealy has been a faithful member since that time. Her parents and other siblings preceded her in death.

She was the product of the Austin public schools and a graduate of Sam Huston College (presently Huston-Tillotson University) with an AB degree in Education.

On June 6, 1929, she married James L. McNealy. They were happily married for 74 years until his demise in 2003. To this union, one daughter, Jennifer Narcissus was born.

She taught for several years in the public schools of Leander, Texas and later substituted in the public schools in the Austin area.

She remained actively involved in her church until her health failed. Among her church activities were: chairperson of resolutions committee and Vacation Bible School, and writing the documentary of the history of Metropolitan AME Church for the historical marker during the pastorate of the late Rev. Dubyner Harris. The late Rev. Harris referred to Sister McNealy as his “Trustee Helper.”

Her other affiliations included memberships in the Lettie Madison Chapter of the 146th Order of the Eastern Star, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and the National Council of Negro Women.
