Helen Louise Campbell was born January 7, 1937 in Transylvania, Louisiana to the late George Campbell and Aleatha (Brown) Campbell. Helen Aka “Booney” comes from a very large family where six of her siblings have preceded her in death; Leon, Clifton, Joyce, Ruby, Bevelyn and Augusta. Helen inherited the title of the Matriarch in 2019, after the passing of their eldest sister Augusta M. Garry.

Helen moved to Las Vegas in 1959 and worked at the Frontier Hotel for thirty-four years. She met and married Fred Neal Madison, and they raised a blended family of eleven children, four of whom preceded her in death Tony, Christopher, Derryl, and Andre.

Helen confessed and gave her life to Christ at the tender age of seventeen on her daddy’s farm in Sondheimer, Louisiana. Helen was a very strong and caring woman who would give you her last if needed. Although Helen was quiet and soft spoken, she was real to the core, she always said what she meant and meant what she said. She was loved by many and she loved each of them in her own unique way, but most of all she loved and was very protective of her children whom all loved her dearly.

Helen leaves to cherish her memory and mourn her passing; Fred Madison, (7) children Aubrey (Ava) Campbell of Houston, Texas, Kim Campbell, Darryl Madison, Bruce Madison of Las Vegas, NV, LaTonya (Rick) Evans of Athens, Fredericka Madison-Perry (Al) and Shawn Madison of Las Vegas, NV, (27) grandchildren, (29) great-grandchildren (5) Sisters, Almarye Booker of Baton Rouge, LA, Marguerite Bousley of Phoenix, AZ, Regina (Mike) Leary of Monkton, MD, Gail (Firk) Chambers of Houston, TX, Brenda Campbell of San Antonio, TX, one brother, Wendell (Theresa) Campbell of Las Vegas, NV, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

I was there with you today.... As the scriptures were being read and prayers were being spoken. I was there with you today....When family and loved ones told wonderful stories about how you shaped their life. I was there with you today....When you entered the Kingdom of Heaven and received your wings. I will always be with you as you continue to watch over me. We were the greatest Mother-in-Law/Son-in-Law duo the world has ever seen. You will be missed. Your Son-in-Law

Aunt Helen was a Queen.

I've been thinking and writing for days just trying to find the right words... but I just keep coming back to "Aunt Helen was a Queen."

I can see her adjusting her hat or wig... just so and that slight head tilt that caught just the right angle in every photo.

I can hear her deliver a calm rebuttal... delivering the smoothest,, slightest, yet truest shade ever.

I can see her eyes light up when children are around and doing their best... and, see the side-eye when they start to cut up.

I can see her glow when her siblings are there... she beams with pride and joy and love.

Just thinking about her, I find myself holding my chin up like a queen... as if I am as regal as she was.

I am greater because of her... for that, I am grateful.

She was grace. She was excellence. She was wit She was charming. She was wisdom. She was resilience. She was grit.

She was magnificent, royalty.

Aunt Helen was a Queen.

Rest in Grace, Your Highness.
