Michelle was such a smart person, funny and enjoyable to be around. I worked with her on many projects at Trane and became better friends while attending a program at Viterbo in the same class. She always had a good, and often unique, way of seeing things. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. She will be missed.

Sad to hear of this. Wasn't she fun to be around? i was a young finance guy at Trane when i first met her, and even though she wasn't much older than me, she always seemed the wise wizard behind the curtain that made everything work. with the wit to boot like so many others have mentioned. Rest in peace Michele. Mark Ellenz

Michele was the first friend I made at Trane 21 years ago. She had the humor, the wit, and the knowledge of the pricing programs to tell me yes to the request or it is 'out of scope'. But we still managed to deliver the programs. We became friends over lunch, shared stories about the kids, hubbies, and the animal antics. I am sorry these last ten years we did not rendezvous for lunch as much (different job); that I never got her to travel with us to Duluth for a weekend (the kitties needed her), but she always made time to share, listen, and laugh. She will be missed.

My condolences to Patrick, Daniel, and your family.

Michele was one of the first to welcome me to the Trane family. From the first day and many years after, I enjoyed her sense of humor, thoughtful insights, and wonderful stories. My deepest sympathy and prayers are with the family.

Michele was such a wonderful person to work with at Trane. She never got frazzled, and she always had a great perspective on current events with the company. She had a fantastic and quirky sense of humor that I already miss. On top of this, you know she was a wonderful person because she loved cats. :-) RIP Michele.

I loved Michele's quirky sense of humor! While working on a project together, she would share funny tales of the spider that rode on the outside of her car from home to work and back again. May your memories of Michele bring you peace at this difficult time.
