Christine (Jahde) Neal

January 2, 1958 — November 29, 2019

Granger, Indiana

Christine Jahde Neal, 61, of Granger, IN, formerly of Monmouth, IL, passed away at 2:45 p.m. Friday, November 29th in St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, Mishawaka, IN, following a lengthy illness.

Christine was born January 2, 1958 in Monmouth, IL, to the late Marilyn (Watson) and Henry Jahde and had lived in the Michiana area since 1992 coming from Denver, CO.

She was also preceded in death by a brother, Steven Jahde. On September 4, 1981 in Monmouth, IL, she married Trevor Neal who survives. Also surviving are her twin daughters, Abigail and Isabel Neal and son, Alex Neal all at home; and one brother, Eric Jahde (Mara’d) of Parker, CO.

Christine graduated Western Illinois University in 1981, earning a BS degree in Elementary Education. Pursuing her life-long goal of becoming an attorney, she studied at Cambridge University, and graduated Valparaiso School of Law in 1993. Following her successful completion of both the Indiana and Michigan State Bar exams, she accepted a position as Federal Law Clerk for Chief Judge Allen Sharp. She excelled as a lawyer, but her true passion and love was her family. After the birth of her son Alex in 1995, she elected to stay home and raise her family; as good as her skills were in the field of law, they paled in comparison to her abilities as a mother and wife.
