Obituary for Jennie Marie Uphoff

Jennie Marie Uphoff, age 52, was freed from her 15 year-long battle with multiple sclerosis on
9/2/2018. She died of natural causes while in her own bed, in the arms of her husband. She
was born on May 16, 1966 in Houston, Texas to Don and Nancy Hutto. Jennie graduated from
the University of Tennessee in 1987. She married her best friend, Ronald Uphoff, on June 25,
1988 in Dickson, Tennessee. She worked as an Executive Director for Open Arms Care Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. In the face of terminal illness, hardships, and overall tough times, Jennie was a fierce warrior, comedian, co-conspirator, homework checker, and on call therapist to all of those who loved her. She was exceedingly adventurous, and loved to take her children caving and rock climbing. Jennie was passionate about counseling youth and shared her heart and wisdom to help improve the lives of others. She loved to take family vacations - packing all of her young ones into an RV or van and filling the air with classic country ballads and silly audiobooks. She spent many years fighting MS, but was strong enough to rise above her intense pain with sheer and overpowering love for her children and her precious grandchild, Caroline - who has been her pride and joy since her birth last year. She is survived by her husband, Ron; her eight children, Miranda, Mollie, Jacob, Joshua, Madison, Mallory, Joseph, and Jonah; her granddaughter, Caroline; her parents, Don and Nancy Hutto; her sisters, Robyn and Shelley Hutto; and her puppies whom she loved so dearly. Jennie was a very open and loving individual, and touched many people’s lives. Family will receive friends 4-6pm Friday at Click Funeral Home Farragut Chapel. Friends, family, and those who knew and loved her are invited to St. John Neumann Catholic Church for a Mass of the Resurrection at 633 St John Ct, Knoxville, TN 37934 at 9am on Saturday, September 8, 2018 to pay their final respects and to share their love and condolences with her family. Burial will follow at Oak Ridge Memorial Park.
