Elizabeth “Libby” (Hoskins) Snorek age 80 of Cazenovia passed away on Tuesday, November 7, 2017. Libby loved her family, her pets, jigsaw puzzles and Christmas.  She loved her small-town community and was a life long resident of Richland County.  Libby was able to stay in her beloved home due to her wonderful neighbors, friends and family.  Elizabeth was born in Dodgeville on August 10, 1937, the oldest of 3 daughters born to David Bennett and Doris Lucille (Beatty) Hoskins.  Libby spent her childhood in Richland Center, where her mother was a homemaker and her father was the Assistant Post Master.
