Mrs. Coleman began her credit union career at Gravelly Point Credit Union, now CommonWealth One, in January 1956 as a teller. At the time, the credit union had two employees, 2,300 members and $500,000 in assets. She was a well-known and much-loved figure in the credit union movement for almost 40 years.
