Mable Poetter and Christmas

Mother-Pink FLoyd

Mabel Poetter was Doc Poetter’s wife. In March 1987, she was  charged with failure to report child abuse. Doc would bring boys into their home and rape them while she was home.

I met her in December 1985. She presented herself as a good Christian woman. She came one night to speak to us girls in the E&O. I had been at Anneewakee for about 2 months now. She spoke to us about how we were never going to be anything other than mothers/house wives, and that is really what God wanted us to strive for. I hated every thing about her. She was just another hypocrite. To make it worse, after her speech, she gave 2, and only 2 girls a cabbage patch doll and said they were voted the “Most Motherly” of our group. After she left the dolls were confiscated by the staff and I never saw anyone with one the whole time I was at Anneewakee. Just more of the psychological bull shit they loved at that place.


I wonder how confused this woman was. She was apparently mentally disabled.

here is her obituary – She never got a divorce and stood by her man’s side, and went to church on Sunday’s.

  3. I’ve heard rumors over the years that doc had died of cancer over a decade ago however he is listed as a ‘surviving heir’ in Mabels obituary from 2011. as recently as 2015 Doc appeared to still listed as the owner of a home on Indian Branch Way in Lawrenceville GA (just a stones throw from Georgia Gwinnett College) so I suspect he may still be around.

  4. posted a comment a few days ago regarding Doc possibly still being alive; I still haven’t found an obituary for him however he was living just a few miles from me (in Lawrenceville GA) for most of the past 15 years; According to Mables obituary she (and Doc) were active members of First Baptist Church in Downtown Lawrenceville. I’ve asked some friends that also attend that church and have been told by them and also by a reporter for the AJC (That had just done a report on SCAD) that he died a couple of years ago.

    Mable was buried at westview cemetary (just west of downtown atlanta – right off I-20 and MLK/Ralph David Abernathy Blvd). I found an image of her tombstone ( ) that shows Doc’s name to the left of hers but at the time this photo was taken there was no ‘deceased’ date for doc. – I suspect he is buried next to her.
