Jeanette Zimov and Avondale in the 1937 Flood

Jeanette Zimov, who was 17 years old in 1937, lived in Avondale then. Although her family did not experience the flood itself first hand, she remembers the struggle to keep clean water on hand, including a visit to a relative's house in Dayton just so everyone could get a shower.
