Michele “Missy” Thiele was born in Rochester, New York on March 28, 1965. Missy has been a resident of Vero Beach, Florida for the past 7 years, previous residences in Grassy Key, Florida; Rochester, New York; and Conesus, New York. Missy graduated from Livonia High School and then chose a career in the construction industry.
She shared her life in Florida with her partner Jackie Strama. The love of the ocean and traveling together created never ending memories. She was happiest when she was in and on the water. Her love of the water began in childhood growing up on Conesus Lake. She became a competitive water skier and enjoyed being part of the ski club with her sister, Mary, and many ski club friends. Missy had an infectious smile and was loved by many.
She is survived by her partner Jackie Strama; her sister, Mary Thiele and partner Jay Keifer; her Aunt Jeanne and Uncle Christopher Krauss; nephew Brett Bridges and his wife, Rachel, grandniece Vivian Bridges; and niece Malory Bridges and her fiancé’, Keith Odell.
She was preceded in death by father Fordyce Thiele and her mother Jeanette Thiele.

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
