Betty Clark

Betty Clark discusses Harvey’s impact on herself, Meyerland, and the “shtetl” feel of Meyerland. The impact on Clark is a reminder that even though a person goes through tough times, the resilient ones rise and keep striving forward. Clark reminisces about defeating cancer, the pain of losing her parents, the illness and death of her husband, and the reality of how Harvey also shaped her life. Further insult was felt in the unscrupulous people that took advantage of people already hurt by Harvey. Clark discusses coping with the loss and impact of Harvey while also enduring chemotherapy and surgery for cancer. She shares her experience rebuilding her home and staying where she is comfortable while also questioning the future safety of the area regarding future flooding.
