Teresa lost her father to yellow fever.

Two years later, with the assistance of a friend, Teresa her two siblings and her mother migrated
legally to California in the U.S. She began schooling for a short time, however the transition was
harder than expected and Teresa began working in the fields to earn a little extra money to help

Duarte California as a nurse’s aide.

At the age of 19 she met her future husband, Gilbert D. Romero, who was also working at the
hospital. They courted for a year and married in the year 1958. They then had three children
between the years of 1959 and 1966. Gilbert Jr., Teresita, and Trinidad. They moved a few times
while still staying in California because of Gilbert’s job, which was working for the city
transportation.

While raising her children, Teresa went to night school at Monrovia High school to finish
learning how to read and write english. In the year 1990 she became a US citizen. She then
moved to Oregon and continued working as a dental technician until the year 2001 when she
retired. Teresa then lived with her daughter Trinidad and her granddaughter in Oregon until she
passed.

faith and her culture. Teresa also enjoyed music and cooking. Her ways of sharing her culture
with others. Her favorite pass time was sewing of any kind, (crochet, embroidery, knitting, etc.)
