Obituary

Fern Maure Albert, 76, of Baker City Oregon, passed away at home on November 7, 2021, surrounded by her husband, children, and grandchildren. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, November 13, 2021, at 10:00 am at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Baker City. She will be interred immediately after at the Mount Hope Cemetery in Baker City, Oregon. 

Maure was born in Sacramento, California on May 25, 1945, to Fern Steward and Maurice Wescott. She spent her childhood in Surprise Valley, California with her beloved grandparents, cousins, and many relatives. Maure’s lifelong love of family history can be traced back to her early childhood and sitting at her grandparent's table and listening to the old-timers tell their stories. Her family moved to Bonanza, Oregon where Maure graduated from high school and where she met her sweetheart Larry.

Maure and Larry were sealed in the Oakland, California Latter-Day Saints Temple and moved several times before settling in Baker City, Oregon. After graduating from Eastern Oregon University she taught school for almost 20 years. Upon retirement, Larry and Maure completed a service mission for their church, which had been her lifelong goal. In the last few years, Maure worked tirelessly doing family history.

She was preceded in death by her beloved granddaughter Sloane Weldon and survived by her husband Larry and their children, Jennifer (Bernie) Weldon, Lance (Becca) Albert, Maura-Lee Albert (Shane Adams), Jesi (Brent) Earley, LaRyn (Luke) Woydziak, Luke (April) Albert and eighteen grandchildren.
