Velma O'Reilly (Yogi) has Passed Away

Posted by Gary Paukert on Sep 27 2021 at 08:47AM PDT in July 2021 Season

Hi Folks,

You’ll probably remember that Yogi O’Reilly, one of the early enthusiasts of our League, passed away recently. We have received word that his wife, Velma, has also passed away.

As I understand it, Velma attended a LOT of Yogi’s games and was well-known to many of us.

A Celebration of Life will take place to honour Yogi and Velma ‘when we can again gather safely and in style.’ Condolences, memories and photos may be shared and viewed at the link below. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Alberta Cancer Foundation, c/o Tom Baker Cancer Centre for Ovarian Cancer, 1331 – 29 Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 4N2 Telephone: 1 (866) 412-4222.

Best regards,

Gary Paukert
