Molly Ting (nee Low) was born in Blenheim in 1911, and was the fourth child of Chong Lee and Lai Chee Low, in a family of eight children. Her parents migrated from China and set up the Chong Lee and Co fruit and vegetable business in Market Street, Blenheim.
She lived at the Ting family's market gardens in Moxham Avenue, Hataitai, before she and Joseph moved in to their own home at Strathmore, in Wellington's eastern suburbs. In this home the Tings raised two sons and a daughter.
The Tings' highly successful Hataitai market garden supplied products for the family's Yee Chong Wing and Te Aro Seeds businesses, which operated (up to 1984) from premises on the corner of Courtenay Place and Tory Street.
In 1929, the Evening Post reported that Mollie (sic) Low (and sister Nettie Low, and Ida Chong) were bridesmaids at the wedding of Herbert Kwok and Ida Low, at the Chinese Anglican Mission Church, on Frederick Street.  A photograph was published in the Auckland Weekly News.
