ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Former CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union President/CEO Kathryn R. Coleman has died. Coleman was a well-known and much loved figure in the credit union movement for some 40 years. Joining what was then known as Gravelly Point Credit Union as a teller in 1956, Coleman steadily worked her way to President/CEO in March 1981. Under her leadership through her retirement in 1994, CommonWealth One FCU grew to $125 million in assets and served 29,000 members. Coleman also became very active in the credit union movement at the national, state and local levels from serving as the chapter president of the Northern Virginia Chapter of the Virginia Credit Union League and VCUL board chair, to CUNA national director/governmental affairs committee member and Filene Institute board director. Involved with the community, Coleman also served as president of Northern Virginia Toastmistress and was a very active member of the American Sewing Guild, Sharing Threads and the Red Hat Society. Coleman is survived by her husband of 58 years Victor N. Coleman Jr., her brother James Riddelle, and several nieces and nephews. A memorial service is planned for April 5, 2005 at 10 a.m. at Greenspring Chapel in Springfield, Virginia.
