Madeline was born December 30, 1932 in Conway, South Carolina, a daughter of the late Grover Melvin Todd and the late Myrtle McCormick Todd. Her mother died when Madeline was only 10 years old and was raised by her step-mother, Grace Shipman Todd. She and her siblings lived in the Connie Maxwell Children's Home in Greenwood, SC, until her father remarried. Madeline graduated from Rivers High School in Charleston, SC, in 1953. Madeline and Boyd loved to travel, visiting all 50 states and ten different foreign countries. She enjoyed knitting, crocheting and was a gifted seamstress as well as a wonderful cook. She was a charter member of Grace on the Ashley Baptist Church and was an active member of the choir. Before she married, Madeline worked as an operator for the telephone company. She also worked as a beautician in Winston Salem, NC for a couple of years soon after the boys left home for college.

Along with her husband Boyd, of 67 years, she is survived by her sons, Randall Boyd Johnson, Charleston, SC, and Richard Alan (Kelly) Johnson, of La Mesa, CA; her sister, Helen Sue Chipman, of Gaffney, SC; her brother, Tilly Gene (Margaret) Todd, of South Port, NC; and many nieces and nephews.
