Janet Faye Ruchti

October 5, 1955 — July 19, 2022

Janet F. Ruchti, age 67 peacefully passed away on July 19th, 2022 in her home. She was born on October 5th, 1955 in Pocatello, Idaho to Charles “Chuck” Coulson, and Donna McKinley.

Janet graduated from Highland High School in 1974. She met the love of her life David Ruchti and married on September 26th, 1975. Soon after, she would embark on her lifelong dream of becoming a loving wife and stay-at-home mom.

Janet enjoyed many of life’s adventures from traveling to Island Park, visiting family, watching her sons play sports and spending as much time as she could with David. She was a lifelong member of the Presbyterian Church.

All throughout their lives, Janet was fiercely devoted to her boys. She was a force to be reckoned with if you crossed her, but had the heart of a Saint if you needed her comfort. She loved her family from the deepest part of her heart and truly believed they could do no wrong.

Janet stood a staggering 4’10 1⁄2 inches tall, but could take a grown man to his knees with the simple tug of the hair on the back of your neck. She had incredible intuition and many times knew before we did if something was wrong. Her gift was knowing how to make it better. She was the epitome of dynamite coming in a small package.

My mom truly loved her husband, David. He was the light of her life. And my dad’s as well. They loved each other on a level that stories are written about. Their devotion to one another was historic and envied by many.

My dad would tell me that “what Janet wants, Janet gets.” Well dad, mom wanted to ultimately be with you for I guess you were right. We love you both with all our hearts.

Janet is proceded in death by her loving husband, David Ruchti, mother Donna McKinley, father Chuck Coulson and step-dad John McKinley. She is survived by her three sons Michael (Lisa, Zoe and Jaxson), Matthew (Misti, Lukas and Tayla) and Mitchell, brothers Brett and Chic Coulson, and step-sisters Marcie Ward and Jennie Korsen, and numerous cousins (special thanks to Kathy and Sherry for their continued support).

Janet and Dave Ruchti will be buried together at Mountain View Cemetery at a later date.
