Biagianti, Laura Beth*  
Laura Beth Biagianti May 26, 1984 - August 30, 2016 It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the death of Laura Beth Biagianti. Laura was born on May 26, 1984 in Barstow, CA and passed away on August 30, 2016 in Hermosa Beach, CA. Lauri, 32, grew up in Newberry Springs, attended local schools, graduating from Silver Valley in 2002. Soon thereafter, she went to work for In-N-Out Burger in Lenwood, a job she loved. She worked there until she transferred to Las Vegas. She continued working at In-N-Out until finally moving on to work as a server/waitress for several well known Las Vegas eateries. She worked for the Grand Lux at the Palazzo, Border Grill at Mandalay Bay and, finally, at Wolfgang Puck's "Cucina". She was a very competitive and determined young lady, who was well liked by her coworkers. Lauri had a couple of passions in life, one being her "little mini-me" - her daughter Lexi, who was born in 2005. Lexi was Lauri's pride and joy and they could usually be found together doing some kind of activity - be it school or pleasure. They loved each other the way only a mother and daughter could! Lauri's other passion would have to be cats!! Lauri was most definitely a cat woman. She loved cats and especially adored grey cats. Though her time on this earth was short, she touched many lives and will be deeply missed by family and friends. She leaves behind her daughter Lexi of Las Vegas, her mom Joni Sheppard of Newberry Springs, her dad Bobby Lastowski of Barstow, her sister Heather and husband Paul and niece Charlotte of Newberry Springs, her sister Tauni and husband Travis and nieces Kelsey and Zoey and nephew Logan, all of Redding, CA; her grandparents Tom and Gloria Sheppard of Newberry Springs and Alex and the late Myrna Lastowski of Barstow. We miss her, we love her, we will never forget her!! Goodbye Bo Bo!! Services were private.
