Caroline Rita Tabaka was born on September 13, 1929, to Peter and Mary (Kuduk) Tabaka, in Minneapolis, MN. She was raised in the city with her ten siblings, attended Holy Cross School and worked for several years as a dietary cook after she finished school.
During a visit to northwest Minnesota, Caroline met John Rominski. The two were soon married on May 28, 1960, in the Basilica of St. Mary, Minneapolis. The young couple made their home in Florian. The two were blessed with six children and Caroline stayed at home to raise her boys, and later babysat for a few neighbors.

Caroline enjoyed crocheting and knitting, and especially liked making booties for newborns. She liked playing BINGO and watching Minnesota Vikings football and Minnesota Twins baseball.
