Janet Tuggle

Janet Jean Tuggle was born in Broadwater, Neb., and graduated from Chadron State College (Neb.) with a degree in music. Her love for music and children led her to spend the majority of her life as a music teacher in Montana and Nebraska.  Janet’s spring programs were legendary and the highlight of the year for her K-4 students and parents.   
Janet and her husband retired to Custer, S.D., where, among other things, Janet developed a true love for horses after she and Gary lived on and helped manage an Appaloosa ranch for many years. Janet loved football and was an avid fan of the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Green Bay Packers.   
Throughout Janet’s life she made a huge impact on her students and there are a lot of lives out there that will forever be touched by her. She was Mom, Gram, and Great-Gram and that is where she truly shined.  
Janet, of Mt. Juliet, Tenn., died Oct. 18, 2019.  She was 82.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Gary Bryan Tuggle; son, Kevin; sister, Judy Wyland; and mother, Dorothy Berta. 
Janet is survived by sons, Gresh (Shellie) Tuggle of Mt. Juliet, and Scott (Gail) Tuggle of San Diego, Calif.; daughter, Cristy Tuggle of Rapid City, S.D.; six grandchildren, Kelly (Jay) Steele, Vince Tuggle, Dylan Tuggle, Joseph Tuggle, Kevin Benavente and Bryan Benavente; as well as seven great-grandchildren.
