Sharon Rudolph

March 13, 1951 — May 9, 2023


Sharon Linete Rudolph, 72, of Twin Falls passed away from illness on May 9, 2023 at St. Luke’s Magic Valley.


She was born on March 13, 1951 in Twin Falls to Walter and Winnifred Rudolph. She grew up in the Magic Valley and loved this town dearly. She was the middle child of three in the Rudolph household and loved her siblings very much. Some often mentioned stories in the family were of days spent at Harmon Park, or out at Nat Soo Pah, and of times spent at their grandparents’ house where her grandmother Rudolph would make traditional German dishes for all the grandkids.


She graduated from Kimberly High School, and her first job was as a waitress in Jackpot, NV before going to beauty school and working as a hairdresser. In 1987, she moved to Northern California to be closer to her mom and stepdad. She worked many different jobs in her time, but her favorite was as the Office Manager for Allstate Insurance because of the love and respect she had for her bosses. She was an avid reader of all genres, and loved Hallmark movies (especially the Christmas ones), westerns, and action movies. She loved going exploring and visited every state in the Western US except three. Some of her favorite trips were to Hawaii, Texas, and the Grand Canyon.


Sharon is survived in death by her siblings Diane (Bill) McCormick of Boise, ID, and Rodney (Becky) Rudolph of Houston, TX. Her loving children who miss her terribly are Brian (Malea) Rudolph of Lake Conroe, TX; Daniel Frazier of Houston, TX; and Kimberly (Charles) Hurtt of Twin Falls, ID. She had many grandchildren, including Joseph, Sierra, Ava, Max, Harley, Heavenleigh, and Charlie, as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews, and honorary family members who loved her.


Memorial services will be held on June 3, 2023 at the Reformed Church in Twin Falls, with a reception to follow. Her ashes will be interred beside her mother at Sunset Memorial Lawn in Twin Falls.


Memorial arrangements can be sent to the Reformed Church for the memorial service. Memorial donations are being accepted through Kim Hurtt at Thank you to the staff at St. Luke’s who treated Sharon with so much care and compassion in her final days. Thank you to all those who have helped with arrangements and been there as a shoulder to lean on during this time. Though she may be gone from our lives, she will always remain in our hearts and memories as a testament to the love she gave. You will be missed greatly.  


The world changes from year to year, our lives from day to day, but the love and memory of you, shall never pass away. - Unknown
