She was born in Burnett, Texas on April 21, 1932, to Kelly and Guadalupe Castillo. When her family moved West to California, Lupe stayed in Austin where she met her husband, Oscar G. Herrera, who passed away in 2011. After meeting in Austin, Guadalupe and Oscar moved to San Antonio where they married, started a family, and called home.
