LAGRANGEVILLE - Monica C. Rouaud, 57, a lifelong area resident, died on May 26, 2021 at her home.
Born on May 16, 1964 in Poughkeepsie, Monica was the beloved daughter of Rudolf and Fanny (Villena Granizo) Schlechter. On September 9, 1989 in France, Monica married the love of her life, Laurent Rouaud.
Monica worked as a business manager for ATPCO in Dulles, VA for 10 years until her retirement in 2010. A graduate of Barnard College in New York City, she studied Economics.
A devoted daughter, Monica was dedicated to her parents and proud of her Ecuadorian and German heritage. An animal lover, she cared deeply not only for the dogs and cats she raised and pampered, but for all animals. She was deeply spiritual, finding meaning in the teachings of religion as well as in the beauty of the nature. Her generous spirit, inquisitive mind, and genuine warmth will be missed by all who knew her.
In addition to her husband, Monica is survived by her parents, Rudy and Fanny Schlechter of LaGrangeville.
The Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Friday, June 4 at 10am at St. Columba Church, 835 Route 82, Hopewell Junction.
