Maureen McCarry, an Issaquah City Councilmember from 1998 to 2000 and from 2006 to 2010, died Wednesday, The Issaquah Press reports.

McCarry resigned from the council in December 2010, after she was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. A 40-acre woodland on Squak Mountain, acquired by the city at her urging, was named McCarry Woods in her honor.
