Michelle Rounds-Monteleone, age 46, of Windermere, FL died unexpectedly at her home on Monday, September 11, 2017. Michelle was born in Corning, NY on May 10, 1971 to Roger and Gayla Rounds.
Michelle was an industrious woman who had the drive and motivation to better herself and others. She attended college at the State University of New York at New Paltz where she graduated cum laude. Upon graduating she started her career on Wall Street. She later advanced to becoming the top recruiter in New York City for Modis, a leading company in the IT staffing industry, and selected elite candidates for Fortune 500 companies.
She was a very loving, giving and caring individual who would help anyone in their time of need.
Michelle had an affection for animals and was always rooting for the "under dog". Michelle will be remembered for her beautiful smile and beautiful long flowing red hair; her signature some would say. The love she had for her family and friends was unconditional. Not to be fooled by her appearance; Michelle was a high-class "tom boy" who was a sharp shooter, enjoyed boxing, golfing and the great outdoors.
She is survived by her wife: Krista Monteleone of Windermere, FL; loving parents: Roger and Gayla Rounds of Addison; brother: Tad (Janet) Rounds of Bath; two daughters; one stepson; grandmother: June Rounds of Addison; two nephews; her favorite aunt: Rosie (Larry) Spencer of Addison, and many aunts, uncles and cousins that she loved very much.
Memorial donations in honor of Michelle can be made to the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation, PO Box 273, Suffern, NY 10901.
Michelle's family will hold a private memorial service. There will be no public services.
