Valmai Webb, nee Glover, was born at Tumby Bay, South Australia and grew up on the family farm at Yeelanna. She attended the local one teacher school for her primary education and then went on to Cummins Area School for three years. Valmai stayed at home for the next seven years until her marriage in 1960 and describes her busy social life in the interim. She discusses the birth of her youngest sister in 1951, when Valmai was 14, and the likelihood that illegitimacy would have been suspected had she been boarding away from home at the time. Valmai joined the Country Women's Association soon after leaving school and took a great interest in home crafts. She and her husband Richard moved to a property at Ungarra after their marriage. They had one daughter and three sons.
