Mable Bolden Carter


Mable Bolden Carter
December 12, 1946 - January 29, 2019

Mable was born December 12, 1946 in Abilene, Texas. From there the daughter of Raymond and Ruby Bolden lived a full 72 years of life as a devoted mother, grandmother, sister and earnest friend. She moved with her family to Corsicana in 1950. Mable found Christ at an early age and attended Bethlehem Baptist Church under the leadership of the Reverend R.L. Jones.
Mable grew to adulthood in Corsicana. She was a proud graduate of then segregated G.W. Jackson High School. While in Corsicana, she met and married Harold Carter and moved to Dallas, Texas. Their union resulted in birth of her two sons, Jeffery and Lenn Carter. Throughout her life she bragged incessantly about her "two boys."
In 1974, Mable took what she thought would be temporary job at the U.S. Post Office in Irving, Texas. Instead, she was a dedicated postal employee until she retired in 2004.
Mable will forever be loved and dearly missed by her two sons, four sisters, four brothers, and host of cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends.
