Despite their decade-long friendship, Pam Lewis knew very little about Reverend Betty Adam’s legendary ministry at one of Houston’s oldest churches. Adam has always been more interested in listening than talking about herself.
Adam died June 30 after a career spanning more than 50 years as an academic, Episcopal priest, and Houston nonprofit leader characterized by her desire to uplift women and build interfaith bridges. She was 82 years old. Her friends and colleagues remembered her this week for her humility, humanitarian work and heartfelt care for all.
