Birthday Laura Lee Andreoff 1Born to Uphami Highfill and Daniel Depas in Blue Springs (near Independence), Missouri, Laura married Frank E. Andreoff on Feb. 25, 1950, in Reno, Nevada. Laura has seen a lot of changes in her 100 years. She was born into a family the oldest of 12 children. Laura loved to hunt and fish, giving the guys a run for the largest deer or fish on many occasions. She lived through the depression and kept her family fed by hunting squirrels. Needless to say Laura is a crack shot—her words! Laura and Frank both worked at Tooele Army Depot, Laura as a munitions expert, Frank in vehicle maintenance. 

Laura has one living sibling, Clara Hendrick, in Missouri, and two nieces in Colorado. Laura has many friends in Grantsville, including neighbors Jill Thomas and Travis Warr. Laura often refers to Jill as her adopted daughter; they all became friends over 30 years ago when Jill lost her blind cat (he was later found).
