Campbell, Olive

May 30, 1930 – October 17, 2022

Olive Elise Mullins Campbell (“Boots”) died October 17, 2022 at Williamsburg Senior Living Facility in Baton Rouge, LA. She was born on May 30, 1930 at Doyle, LA (now called Livingston). She was a member of Bethel United Methodist Church for more than 60 years. She graduated from Central High School in 1947 and retired from Goudchaux’s Department Store Credit Office. Olive loved cooking for friends, neighbors, and family. She loved to fish and was a die-hard fan of LSU baseball. She was always writing and wrote several articles about events and growing up in Central for Central City News. The articles she was most proud of were “Growing up and Growing Old in Central” and “Christmas Then and Now.” The latter was a tribute to her mother, Vada Mullins, who worked so hard to raise 6 children alone. Olive is survived by a son, Thomas G. Campbell and his wife Bobbie Campbell; granddaughter, Emily Campbell and her husband Victor P. Erwin; her sister Vera M. Ellis and her husband George Ellis; her brother Thomas M. Mullins, Jr. and his wife Paula Mullins. She is preceded in death by her husband, Thomas Cecil Campbell; parents Thomas M. Mullins, Sr. and Vada Davison Mullins; her brother John G. Mullins; Elliot Hutchison and his wife DeLois Hutchison; a sister Dorothy M. McManus and her husband Archie I. McManus, Sr.; her sister Thadys Love; her beloved great nephew Jonathan Love; and her cousin Martha Crowson. Visitation will be held at Seale Funeral Home in Denham Springs, LA on October 22, 2022 from 9:00AM – 11:00AM. Service will be held from 11:00AM – 12:00PM.

    I knew Olive from Bethel. She always sat in front of us at church. She kept us on our toes and laughing. Although I didn’t know Olive for a really long time, many stories were shared regarding her through my family who knew her and her Mom for many years. Mrs. Mullins baby sat my sister’s children. It has come to my attention that some members of Bethel missed the news of Olive’s passing and are sorry to have missed her services. Just know that she had many friends who were not able to pay their respect for various reasons. Olive is missed. Emily, you were blessed to have a grandmother who cared so very much about you. If you knew Olive at all, you knew about Emily!

    I’m very sorry for your loss, Emily. I know losing a family member is very hard, but know that we’re thinking about you. I’ve made a donation to St. Jude’s in grandmother’s name. I hope time and fond memories will ease your sorrow.
