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.
