Roma Waite came originally from Western Australia. She came later in her life to library studies and teaching, working at various schools including at Thomas More College. She was appointed as a library adviser for the South Australian State school system and helped to set up and advise on libraries in schools. During the 1980s, Roma Waite went to work as a volunteer at Trinity College Gawler.

She was responsible for establishing the library at Trinity and for many years she assisted with professional tasks. Her dedication and contribution to Trinity College generally and to the library specifically, was recognised when the library was named after her.

Roma Waite was a devoted Christian and was associated with the Anglican Church in Gawler for many years.
