Columbus, Ohio
Formerly of Tiffin, Ohio

Jennifer Lynn “Jenny” Gaietto Ufferman, age 37, of Columbus and formerly of Tiffin, passed away suddenly on Friday, October 26, 2018.

On September 17, 1981, Jenny was born in Tiffin, Ohio, the middle of three daughters of Doreen (Calvert) Gaietto and the late Christopher Gaietto.  She graduated from Mohawk High School in Sycamore in the class of 1999, and was raised in the St. Mary Catholic Church in Tiffin.

Jenny found a special love with David B. Ufferman, whom she married on August 9, 2015, in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  They shared a love for camping, and they had hoped to travel the country in an RV one day.

Having a huge heart, Jenny overflowed with love for her family, friends and animals.  She was a loving mother, wife, daughter, sister, niece, cousin and friend.  Jenny always had a smile, had a bubbly, fun-loving personality, she was quick witted and feisty.  She was adventurous and outgoing.  There was never a dull moment when Jenny was around.  She had a kind and generous heart and always quick to forgive.  She loved spending time with her family and friends and going to LJ’s football games with Dave, her husband and just spending time together as a family.  Jenny looked forward to celebrating the holidays and special occasions, like birthdays and anniversaries.  She enjoyed playing cards, board games, watching movies and she loved her pets, Slyvester, her cat, her many hamsters and her and LJ’s geiko, Leah.  They were all spoiled rotten by her.

Jenny was so very loved and we will all cherish the many wonderful and funny memories we have of her.  She will always live on in our hearts.

Left to cherish her memory are her husband, David Ufferman of Columbus; son, Lawrence “LJ” Smith of Marysville; mother, Doreen Gaietto of Tiffin; two sisters: Rita (Chad) Gaietto-Overmier of Tiffin, Jessica Kizer and Jessica’s children: Kailyn and Garett, all of Perrysburg; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Including her father, Jenny was preceded in death by her grandparents: William and Rita Calvert, and Michael and Maria Gaietto.

A Celebration of Jenny’s life will be held from 1 – 4 P.M. on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at Tiffin Eagles, 68 Riverside Drive, Tiffin, Ohio 44883, where we will share stories and have a luncheon.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to a favorite charity or do an act of kindness in memory of her.
