August 7, 1937 - September 20, 2020
Mei Hui “Amy” Lin passed away at age 83 on September 20, 2020. She was caring, generous and compassionate. Her focus in life was always her family and friends. Born in Taiwan, during the Japanese occupation, she was the eldest of five children with two brothers and two sisters. Mei received a Bachelor of Arts degree from National Taiwan Normal University in Taipei, an elite university dedicated to teacher education. She was a high school teacher at Hsinchu Commercial and Vocational High School for 16 years. In 1962, she married Chin S. Lin, the older brother of her college classmate, and had three children, Linda, Peter and Howard. Seeking better opportunities for her young family, Mei and her husband immigrated to the US. Typical of her selflessness, she learned English while working multiple jobs in order to provide her children with better opportunities. When her children completed their college educations, she moved to California to start her second career in the family business as a hotel manager. Mei loved the hospitality business. She knew every customer and staff personally – their likes and dislikes. She made the hotel “a home away from home” for each of them. She treated the hotel staff and every customer like her extended family. Even after her retirement at age 77, she continued to visit the customers and staff every weekend for breakfast. Mei enjoyed her last years with her husband of 56 years in their home in Fremont with frequent visits from her children and grandchildren. For the past year and a half, she bravely fought her uterine cancer while grieving the loss of her husband and one true love. She was surrounded by her family when she passed away peacefully. She is survived by her daughter, Linda, her husband, Greg and their two sons, Nicholas and Jason; her son, Peter, and his wife, Maritza; and her son, Howard, his wife, Steasi, and their triplets, Maryssa, Matthew and Alexandra. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society or the Foundation for Women’s Cancer to support the fight against cancer.
