In 1951, Janelle married Richard Weldon Freeman, Sr., from Oklahoma City while both were students at Austin College in Sherman, Texas.Janelle and Richard established a home in Oklahoma City where they lived for the rest of their lives after Richard completed his service in the U.S. Air Force in 1954. They had three sons: Richard Freeman, Jr.; Roger Freeman; and John Freeman.Janelle later completed her education at the University of Central Oklahoma where she obtained her bachelor's and master's degrees in education before embarking on her long career as a secondary school teacher throughout the Oklahoma City Public Schools system before her retirement.Janelle's husband of 62 years Richard, Sr., and her youngest son John predeceased her.
