She was born August 2, 1933, in Monessen, PA, daughter of the late William and Ethel Pearce.

A graduate of Rostraver High School, she married the late Melvin Romestan in 1952, and celebrated 59 years together.

Mrs. Romestan, a former member of Burgettstown Presbyterian Church, was a gifted Sunday school teacher and coordinator of Vacation Bible School.   In later years she wrote and directed dramas that the church performed, as well as making the costumes.  Mrs. Romestan enjoyed quilting, embroidery, and crocheting throughout her adult life.  In addition, she and her husband enjoyed doing woodworking projects together.  Being a foster parent to several children was another way in which Mrs. Romestan shared her love of caring for people.
