Madeleine P. Munoz (nee Perrault) passed away July 9, 2013, in Bozeman of natural causes. Madeleine was born in Bronxville, N.Y. on Dec. 20, 1935, to Roland C. Perrault and Madeleine Alice (Wilson) Perrault. Her early childhood years were spent in small towns north of New York City until moving in 1944 to Worcester, Mass., her father's birthplace. She graduated from North High School in Worcester in 1953 and proceeded to Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, when Vassar admitted women only. She is an alumna of the Class of 1957. She then began teaching elementary education first in Tenafly, N.J., next at the U.S. Army post in Fulda, Germany, for two years and lastly in Concord, Mass. While living in Cambridge, Mass., she was a faculty member for a summer program for teachers held at Tufts University. In 1966, she spent three years as Assistant Director of Admissions at Vassar, her Alma Mater. Her next career change took her to AT&T - Long Lines as a manager for 20 years. She worked in White Plains, N.Y. and several locations in N.J. including headquarters in Basking Ridge. Her assignments in multiple departments in accounting, international operations and marketing occurred as the company was one of the first in the nation to promote opportunities for women in the work place.

Madeleine was married on April 14, 1977, to Miguel A. Munoz Rauschenplat, a lawyer born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Following their retirements, they moved to Bozeman to be near Madeleine's sister and brother-in-law, Gail and Bob Jockers. They both agreed that the move to Montana was the best decision of their married life. Miguel learned to fish and Madeleine got out with BWAGs. She was a member of Chapter F, P.E.O. In past years, she enjoyed volunteering at Longfellow School and was an enthusiastic volunteer for Vassar. There was time for international travel to Africa, the Amazon, the Caribbean, Alaska, Argentina, India and multiple trips to Europe. Her family dubbed her "Marco" because of her love of travel.

She leaves behind her dear husband; sister, Gail (Bob) Jockers of Livingston; brother, Michael Perrault (Pilar) of Forrest Grove, Ore.; nephews, Jeffrey, Glenn (Stacy) and Mark (Lauren) Perrault, Matthew (Angela) Jockers; and only niece, Jennifer (Kelly) Jockers Koontz. Also, five step-children, seven step-grandchildren and eight step great-grandchildren survive her.

At her request, a private family interment will take place at a later date at Sunset Hills Cemetery.
