Nancy Reed, 77, kicked the bucket September 15 of necrotizing faciitis, all the more generally known as substance eating microbes, her post-mortem examination comes about discharged Tuesday affirmed.

A survivor of Hurricane Harvey died this month from the flesh-eating bacteria known as necrotizing fasciitis, an autopsy confirmed. She contracted necrotizing fasciitis, a skin infection that kills the body's soft tissue, through a wound she got from the fall, Houston Health Department spokesman Porfirio Villarreal said Thursday. Her case is the 36th official Harvey-related death in Harris County. The elderly woman fell into contaminated floodwater and was hospitalized after a wound in her arm became infected.

Necrotizing fasciitis is a rare disease caused by various types of bacteria, most commonly group A strep, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She was taken to Houston's Memorial Hermann Hospital Woodlands for treatment when the injury became infected, complicating the healing of the broken bone.

"It was hard to learn because we saw her a lot, very often, at all of our events", said the center's Development Manager Erica Badamo. "That's what I would say, and we're going to miss her".

Reed had been a benefactor and long-term volunteer at her congregation and a few charitable associations.
