HoLing Hui's legal name was Sylvia Hui Lam. In August, 2003, Ms. Lam was tragically killed crossing the street in St. Paul, MN. She is survived by her husband, two sons, a daughter-in-law, and granddaughter. Two memorial funds were set up in her name to continue her legacy in her artistic and professional lives. Quesions about these funds may be forwarded to her surviving family.

Sylvia Ho-Ling Hui Lam Memorial Fund

The Sylvia Ho-Ling Hui Lam Memorial Fund was established in January, 2005 under the umbrella of the Chinese Heritage Foundation (CHF). Its objective is to help introduce arts, performing and visual, to children of all ages, especially those disadvantaged. Because it was established as part of the CHF, it will also help the CHF in its mission to promote the understanding of Chinese culture and heritage in Minnesota and across the United States.

In the near future, the family hopes to sell prints of Ms. Lam's work and donate all proceeds to this fund.

Sylvia H. Lam Endowed Cancer Research Fund

Ms. Lam worked at the University of Minnesota as a research scientist for over 30 years. At the time of her death, she worked at the University of Minnesota Cancer Center and spent a lot of time with the summer interns that studied in her research lab.

The Sylvia H. Lam Endowed Cancer Research Fund was established at the Minnesota Medical Foundation (MMF) to further help disadvantaged students obtain summer internships at the University of Minnesota Cancer Center. It will also provide one-time scholarships to foreign or disadvantaged students under the guidance of members of the Cancer Center.
