Ola Mae Coleman was born June 13, 1930 in Dallas Texas to the parents of Hubert and Ollie Mae Lawrence. Raised by adopted mother Christie Bell McKellum and stepmother Obelia Lawrence. She accepted Christ at an early age uniting with the Salem Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev B.R. Riley. She later united with the Greater Mt Sinai Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev L.C. Jones Sr.., serving on the Senior Usher Board and the Hospitality committee. She received her education at the Lincoln High School, graduating in 1947. Ola Mae had many jobs during her 86 years, working as a Driver at the Auction and for the United States Postal Service for 25 years showing her commitment to a strong work ethic. She was avid reader, loved to travel and could always be counted on to open her heart and her hand to help someone in need. Her passion for life and family along with her quick wit will be missed.
She leaves to cherish her memory husband Elester Coleman of 38 years, and host of family and friends.
