Yolande SchickHistory

Obituary

Yolande was an outgoing, fun, loving person. Everyone who knew her learned more about themselves by being in her company. At a very young age, she lost her mother and quickly learned to become a caregiver herself. She was a very selfless person who gave lots of herself. Through all of her hardships, she still found the time to become an amazing wife as well as a loving mother who showed that family values are more important than the material things in life. She was always there to lend a shoulder when needed and to provide words of wisdom.

Yolande had many profound achievements throughout her life from standing up for her children’s rights in school to being recognized, along with all former players in the AAGPBL, by the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame for her accomplishments with the League. She lived her life to the fullest, providing herself with experiences that could fill many lifetimes over.

 

 

Yolande Teillet Schick was the Baseball player/Granddaughter of Joseph Riel, the younger brother of Louis Riel.  She was born in St. Vital, Manitoba on 28 September 1927. While playing the position of catcher for the St. Vital Tigerettes, she was recruited for the Fort Wayne Daisies of the All-American Girls Baseball League. As such, she was one of the first Métis players to play in that league. She is a member of the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame, the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, and her name appears in the US National Baseball Hall of Fame. She died on 26 January 2006.
