ROMEO, Laura Catherine, age 58, of Las Vegas, Nevada, passed away on September 27, 2016. Born in Arlington, Virginia on October 6, 1957, but grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. At age 21, Laura began working in the gaming industry, starting as a change girl at the Silver City Casino. She continued in the gaming industry in Las Vegas, having worked at the Palace Station, Barbary Coast and the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino. Laura excelled in the gaming industry, making such a huge impact during her several years of employment at the Gold Coast, that in 1993, she was one of very few people invited to take her gaming knowledge and work expertise across the country to the state of Illinois, for a life changing career opportunity to help open the new riverboat casino, called the Casino Queen, where she worked until 1999. After putting in over 25 years in the gaming industry, Laura moved back to Las Vegas in 1999 to do what she loved most, be with her family. Laura was a born again Christian who was always in touch with her spiritual relationship with the Lord. It was always her great pleasure to help anyone in need, in any way she could. She was always a blessing and touched the hearts of everyone she came into contact with. Preceded in death by her father, Alvin Martin and her husband, Richard Romeo. She is survived by her mother, Mary Wilkerson, her 2 children, Brandie Schnobrich and Jeremy Filmer, her 2 brothers, David Martin and Richard Chapman, her sister Leanne Martin, her granddaughter, Jordyn Filmer, her 2 nephews, Daniel Walsh and Christopher Martin, her 2 nieces, Brittany Broder and Courtney Ashe and lots of extended family and friends.
