Born in Sunnyside, Washington to Eleanor and Guy Smith. Laurie married her husband, Orville Roupe in 1982 and spent 33 loving years together. They have two children, Jason and Nicole. Laurie worked as a receptionist at the law office of Calfo Harrigan Leyh & Eakes (formally known as, Danielson Harrigan & Tollfeson). Her co-workers were a second family to Laurie, and she enjoyed going to work every day to see them. Laurie was and avid skier for many years, being a member of The Everett Ski Club at Stevens Pass. She and Orville were members of the Washington Athletic Club for 39 years. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends up at the family summer home at Tulare Beach.
