Portrait of Tuey M. Hom with abacus


Portrait of Tuey M. Hom seated with an abacus. Born Tuey May Kung, Hom was the daughter of Henry Kung and his wife Wong Shee Kung. She was born, raised and educated in Guangdong, China, and married James K. S. Hom in 1949; eight years later the couple emigrated to Baltimore, Maryland. Mrs. Hom’s husband owned and operated Joy Garden, a Harford Road carryout in Northeast Baltimore, for more than a decade. In 1974, the couple established Cathy Village Inn on York Road in Timonium, Maryland, where Mrs. Hom was both hostess and cashier. The establishment later became Pacific Rim Restaurant, which they owned and operated until selling the business and retiring in 2007.
