Jenniveve “Jennifer” Tippetts, age 62, passed away on March 9, 2024, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, at home surrounded by family and loved ones, after fighting metastatic breast cancer for several years.

She was the 5th of seven children born to Jack Claude and Dolores Bingham Tippetts on February 14, 1962, in Ogden, Utah.

Jenni attended Weber County schools, graduating from Weber High School in 1980. After graduation, she attended Weber State College, and later became a licensed massage therapist and esthetician. She loved being a full-time mother and friend.

She married Michael Aldana in 1986. Although they were later divorced, together they share eight beautiful children, seven girls and one boy: Abish (Chadwick) of Idaho Falls, Sariah (Zack) Elison of Idaho Falls, Charity (& spouse) of Eugene OR, Isaac of Idaho Falls, Angel (Bryce) of Shelley ID, Grace (Jesus) of Idaho Falls, Libby (Henri) of Charlotte NC, and Eden of Idaho Falls. She also has two grandsons, Luke and Vince. Jenni was engaged to Steve Permann of Ammon, Idaho, at the time of her passing.

She loved music and shared her great musical talents through singing, playing the piano, lap harp and many other instruments. She had a great interest in helping people obtain health and happiness. She enjoyed arts and crafts and was skilled at sewing and crocheting. She also loved dancing, laughing, singing, nature, and creating memories with loved ones. 

She was loved by all who knew her and touched many lives with her gentle, healing spirit. She had a great love of people from all walks of life no matter their race, religion, or culture. As a lover of truth and wisdom, she enjoyed learning about many different faiths, cultures, and ways of life which she warmly embraced and freely shared. She also served a mission in Austria for the LDS church from 1983-1984.

She is survived by seveb siblings, Vicki (Jimmy) Smout of Scottsdale AZ, Alison (Glenn) Driggs of Mesa AZ, Claudia (Ben) Farr of Marriott-Slaterville UT, Jack (Stacey) Tippetts of Clearfield UT, Cara Warren of Marriott-Slaterville, and Erin (Shawn) Taylor of Hooper, UT.
