Bergengrens daughter Dorothy Hartman dies
BERLIN, Vt. (5/19/10)--Dorothy Bergengren Hartman, daughter of credit union pioneer and Credit Union National Association (CUNA) founder Roy F. Bergengren, died May 3 in Berlin, Vt., CUNA has learned. Hartman died at her home at the age of 93. She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward M. Hartman. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1939. She was Berlin town clerk from 1987 to 2002 and assistant town clerk from 1973 to 1987 (Times Argus May 4). Bergengren founded the Credit Union National Extension Bureau--CUNA's predecessor--in 1921 to work toward establishing credit union laws in all states and at the federal level. He served as CUNA's first managing director (now CEO) when it was formed in 1934. Hartman's daughter Kathleen Pelletier spoke at the America's Credit Union Conference in Boston, Mass., last year as part of CUNA's commemoration of its 75th anniversary. Hartman is survived by four children, 21 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
