Trinh Huynh loved to travel so much, she quit her job as an attorney in 2010 and set out to see the world. For two years, she traveled, visiting every continent except Antarctica, according to her obituary published Friday.

“Trinh lived her life passionately whether as a daughter, sister, aunt, friend, or attorney,” the obituary said.

Huynh, 40, died Monday after being shot as she walked on Peachtree Street, about a block from her Midtown home. Atlanta police have charged Raylon Browning with murder, but no details on a possible motive have been released. Browning, 39, remained Friday in the Fulton County jail, where he is being held without bond.

Hundreds of people attended a candlelight vigil Thursday night in Huynh’s honor. Family and friends are again expected to attend two visitations this weekend at Little & Davenport Funeral Home and Crematory in Gainesville. Visitation will be held Saturday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. at the funeral home.

Huynh is survived by her mother, four sisters and nephews.
