Romana was born to Felix and Maurella (Fabian) Silvestre on October 16, 1919 and grew up in Piddig, Llocos Norte, Philippines. She earned her degree as a teacher from Philippine Normal College. She married Alex J. Castillo in 1942. Tired of moving from one place to another due to the nature of Alex’s job, she decided to settle down in her hometown of Piddig with her daughters. Credit is given to her for raising her five daughters well. In 1973 she migrated to the United States of America, and Alex followed suit. In the U.S., she enjoyed life to the fullest, traveling with her family. In her spare time, she indulged in gardening, reading, and watching game shows.
