SOUTH SIOUX CITY | The parents of the South Sioux City woman who was shot and killed last week have opened a benefit account for her children. 

Mei (Sue) Huang, 33, died Sept. 6 at a Sioux City hospital after police say her husband shot her outside of the Law Enforcement Center in South Sioux City. 

The benefit account has been established by her parents Carrie Durant and Sara Bowman at Siouxland Federal Credit Union for her two children under the benefit account "Maddie and Noah," a press release said. 

A memorial for her will be 4 to 5 p.m. Oct. 1 at the gym in Augustana Lutheran Church at 600 Court St. in Sioux City.

Her funeral services will be at Kwan Ying Buddhist Temple in Los Angeles Sept. 22.

Her obituary says Huang was born on March 6, 1984, in Guangdong, China to Ruxiong Huang and Ming Juian Wu. She attended and graduated school in China. When she was 22 years old she moved to the United States where she lived in Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska. In 2014, she moved to South Sioux City to take over the restaurant Panda Palace, 2601 Cornhusker Drive.

In the morning of Sept. 6, police inside the Law Enforcement Center, at 710 W. 29th St., heard two gunshots coming from outside. When they went out to investigate, they found Huang lying on the ground with gunshot wounds. A firearm was recovered at the scene. Her husband, Beisheng Chen, 41, of South Sioux City, was found in the vicinity and taken into custody for questioning. He has since been charged with first-degree murder. His first court appearance has been set for Sept. 19.
