|Juanita Kaufman is well known as a resident who never stops making her neighborhood a better place to live. On March 14 she reaches a milestone in her life, as she celebrates her 90th birthday. Born into a family of nine children, Kaufman lived on a farm in Marysville. During wartime she worked on B-1 Bombers and built furnaces, later working at a school supply center. In 1965, she and her family moved to Columbus and bought a home on Eastfield Drive. Kaufman was instrumental in founding the Westfield and Eastfield Neighborhood Association. For years Kaufman has kept active in her community – working with the Southwest Area Commission, the Southwest Neighbors Protecting Our Environment, church groups, and was awarded the Anna Mildred Henderson Community Service Award. In 2008, the Franklin Township trustees created the Juanita Kaufman award, which annually recognized those who are committed to their neighborhoods through volunteerism and good works.
