Those who knew a popular RIT professor that was killed one year ago today, came to the Memorial Art Gallery Monday to honor her.

Edline Chun was robbed and shot inside her home on Hazelwood Terrace last February. Her body was found days later in Tryon Park.

Chun was a professor in RIT's college of imaging arts and sciences.

We’re told she was also involved in many different community organizations, including the establishment of a shelter for troubled women and their children.

We spoke with a friend of hers, Victoria Kaiulani-Visiko, who organized tonight's memorial. 

“She would do anything and everything for you. If she loved you, that was it. She would be there for you. And she was there for me for many years. As my student, as my friend, and as my family member,” Victoria Kaiulani-Visiko.

Victoria says she and her husband have started a fund to plant a tree in Chun's honor. Two people have been convicted in her death. her former neighbor, Jerrell Henry, Is serving life behind bars without parole. His girlfriend, Natalie Johnson, Is serving 25 years to life.
