Obituary of Laura M. Bennett
Laura M. Bennett passed away May 7th at Littleton Adventist Hospital. She was born May 14, 1968 to Larry Bennett and Charlotte Crites in Wichita, Kansas. Laura graduated from Alameda High School in Lakewood, Colorado.
In 2001, Laura was hired by Denver law firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck to be Chairman Norm Brownstein’s executive assistant. She spent 21 years at the firm and helped Norm, Steve Farber and Jack Hyatt, the firm’s founders, build the firm into national prominence. During her time working with Norm, the firm became the largest lobbying firm in the U.S. Senators, congresspeople and staffers in Washington, D.C. held a special admiration for Laura.
Laura loved animals – especially her three dogs: Charli, George and Olli, her newest addition. She was a dedicated supporter of several animal rescues – from small to big animals.
