I am writing a book about my mother-in-law Mavis Gock Ming. Mavis was the daughter of Chinese father Gock Ming and Australian mother Mabel Jenkins. Born in Peth, Australia in 1916, Mavis' father took the family to Shanghai in 1925 where he worked for the Wing On department store. After completing high school at the Shanghai Public School for Girls Mavis returned to Sydney Australia where she trained as a physical education instructor with the Women's League of Health. In 1939 she went to Hong Kong to start a branch of the Women's League of Health.
