Snooky enjoyed life to the fullest. She loved skiing, working in her yard, snowmobiling, boating, camping, and having a good old time with her friends.

 

In 1988, she moved to Helena and became a partner in the Cozy Motel. She ran the motel for many years before retiring and eventually returning to her beloved hometown of Butte.
