Maureen Rose (Drescher) Ernst, 69, of Mount Angel, passed away after a short, but fierce fight with cancer.

She was a leader in many community organizations, including the St. Paul Catholic Church, St. Paul Historical Society, Mount Angel Chamber of Commerce, Mount Angel Lion’s Club and was one of the founding organizers of the Mount Angel Hazelnut Festival. She was Mount Angel’s First Citizen for 2010.

Her family recalls “Grammy” as a spirited sports fan who attended hundreds of her children and grandchildren’s games. She will be remembered as the ultimate competitor from the stands.

Maureen is survived by her children, Angela Capps (Troy), Ben Ernst (Ann) and Madeline Tanner (Rob); and grandchildren: Margo Metcalf-Capps, McKaylie and Brynn Capps; Zachary and Riley Ernst; and Kellen and Allison Tanner. Siblings Sue Price (Jim), Peggy Sellers (John), Mary Paret (Jack) and
Dan Drescher (Jodi). She was preceded in death by her parents, Hubert and Marguerite Drescher.

Funeral services were May 4 at St. Paul Catholic Church in St. Paul.
