One mother on the list:
Margaret White from Carrie by Stephen KingRead about another mother on the list.
Mother of Carrie White, Margaret was religious fanatic who believed nearly everything was sin and became physically and emotionally abusive to her daughter in an effort to get her to conform to her devout lifestyle, usually by locking her in a closet until she prayed for forgiveness. That kind of mother would send anyone into a telekinetic fury.
