Paula J. Kaufmann, a resident of Tallassee, died March 13, 2024. She loved no place in this world more than her kitchen, and that is where she passed peacefully while surrounded by her children. She leaves behind her two children, Virginia A. Gallander (Jack) and Matthew J. Driza, her granddaughters Anna, Eva and Madeleine Gallander, her sister, Marla Battles (Tom) and her beloved dog, Vinny. The family would like to thank Amedisys Hospice of Montgomery for their invaluable support during her illness. They would also like to thank Urban Tails of Tallassee for always being there to take care of Vinny. We ask you to please honor her by being of service to others. Instead of flowers, please make a donation to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Instead of casseroles, please make a donation to your local food bank. Most importantly, sit down and drink a cup of coffee in her honor and remember her as often as you can.

There will be a Celebration of Life service at a later date.
