On May 24, 2021, Snooky left this world to be with her Lord and Savior. She was met by her father and mother; beloved brother, Dewey Daicich; her niece, Danelle Daicich; and beloved companion, Kaisha.


Snooky was born in Butte Jan. 29, 1929, to Mike and Angela Daicich. She was the oldest of two children.

On May 15, 1949, she married Eli Lazetich. They divorced after 25 years of marriage.


She and Sylvia Smith, her best friend and sister-in-law, worked many years together in Sylvia's Beauty Shop.


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.


She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Angela and Mike Daicich; beloved brother, Dewey Daicich; and her niece, Danelle Diaicich.
