Laura Lee Depas Andreoff passed away peacefully in her sleep Sunday morning, Jan. 16, 2022, just shy of her 100th birthday. She was born to Uphami Highfill and Daniel Depas in Blue Springs (near independence) Missouri.
Born the oldest of 12 children, Laura loved to hunt and fish. She helped her family survive the depression by hunting squirrels; in her words she was a “crack shot.” Laura worked as a munitions expert at the Tooele Army Depot.
She is survived by her younger sister Clara Hendrick, and two nieces Debbie Condit (Gerald) and Carol Duerock. She will be missed by her adopted daughter, neighbor, and friends Jill Thomas and Travis Warr.
