Obituary Condolences

In the early morning hours of Wednesday, September 12, 2018, God dispatched his angels to reclaim one of his own. At the age of 65, Rev. Christine Belinda Coleman, formerly of Petersburg, Virginia, entered eternal rest peacefully in Lewisville, Texas. She was born June 28, 1953, to the late Joseph Coleman, and the late Vieva Walker Coleman. She grew up in the Carson Community, and received her early education in the Dinwiddie County Public School System. She was a graduate of the Dinwiddie High School Class of 1973. She furthered her education and became a License Cosmetologist. And thereafter taught cosmetology at Flair Hair School and Jazz Barbering School in Petersburg, Virginia. She was an employee with Chesterfield County as a Relief Counselor, and was a retired employee of Southside Virginia Training Center, after many years of service.

Reverend Christine Coleman was fully committed to God and kingdom building. She served as Assistant to the Pastor of Little Zion Baptist Church, working diligently, demonstrating her dependability and inner conviction of working for Christ and not for those around her. Her dedication was reflected through numerous ministries of Little Zion to include Church School, the Hospitality Ministry, Missionary Ministry, and Summer Camp Ministry. Reverend Coleman served as Assistant Secretary of United Fellowship of Churches and was instrumental as Administrative Assistant of Bethany Baptist Association Southside Virginia. Her ministry extended beyond the walls of Little Zion, proclaiming and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. She was an affiliate of Petersburg Ministers Conference, Virginia Baptist Convention, and the Baptist General Convention. She was an active member of the Order of Eastern Star and Petersburg Beauticians Association, until her decline in health.

Rev. Coleman enjoyed her family and loved being around friends. She enjoyed cooking, talking, doing Sudoku Books, absolutely loved dining at her favorite local restaurant, " Captain Toms" and having her personal tea parties with her granddaughters.

Besides her parents, she is preceded in death by her daughter, LaKisha Coleman, siblings, Arthur Walker, Viola Parham, Joseph Coleman, Jr. "Pee- Wee", Warren L. Coleman, and Dywane Coleman.

She leaves to cherish her memories, children, Tonya Coleman, and Antonio Coleman (Lori); grandchildren, Kaylyn and Shamiya Weaver, Khalil and Tamar Coleman, NaC'aesa, Estacia, Darius and Aston; two brothers, James Coleman, Donnie Coleman (Glenda); a host of great-grandchildren, a host of nieces and nephews, to include devoted, April Taylor, James Monte Parham, and devoted grandson, Anthony Weaver; aunt, Lucille Walker.
