On September 12th of each year, CrossFit Sonora celebrates the life of Eva Marie Schicke.  Eva was well known to so many of our members who are affiliated with the large family of EMS and Fire Services here in Tuolumne County.  CFS Coach Sarah Schummer, who was Eva’s close friend and fellow Cal Fire co-worker, remembers her friendship fondly, “Eva was a beautiful person.  She had a unique spirit, a genuine soul.  She brought light to anyone she was around, she made you feel special.  Her witty humor and sass made me laugh like nothing else could.  I miss her always…Until we meet again, my friend.”

In April of 2008, a memorial was placed at the Rim of the World Vista Point in Eva’s honor.

CFS member, Christina Bonetti has history with the unfortunate tragedy.  Christina was flying with Tuolumne County SAR during the Search and Rescue mission when they were cancelled and heard traffic over the radio about the burn over.  “I knew it was Eva.  I came home and called her Captain, who was off duty visiting family in Santa Cruz at the time.  I just told him he needed to contact someone to find out details.   It was a very difficult time for so many here in our county, so that is why it is so important to honor her.”

Eva played forward on the CSU Stanislaus Women’s Basketball team.

“Eva Schicke was the ideal firefighter, tough and smart and gritty.
She had no apparent qualms about plunging into blazes, the kind that devour forests in minutes and on Sunday afternoon devoured Schicke.
Schicke was the first female firefighter and the 70th overall to die on the job in the nearly 100-year history of California Department of Forestry. Ironically, the fire that killed her wasn’t one of those monster fires, the ones that consume tens of thousands of acres; it was an 800-acre blaze in the Stanislaus National Forest, and it caught Schicke so quickly that she had no chance to escape it.  Schicke helicoptered into the Tuolumne River Canyon just west of Yosemite National Park as part of an elite Helitack crew that charges into a fire and “provides a quick holding action until more resources can get there,” said Schicke’s boss and mentor, Forestry Department Battalion Chief Jeff Millar, a 25-year veteran who recruited Schicke and helped turn her from a green firefighter into what he called “an ace.”  Schicke was one of a crew of seven — a captain and six firefighters –who were overrun by the fire, which started Sunday.  Schicke was killed, and the six other members of the Helitack crew were injured and were taken to Sonora Regional Medical Center in Sonora, where they were treated and released for minor burns and abrasions. One firefighter was air lifted to UC Davis Medical Center Burn Unit.  In Sacramento, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said, “In the face of danger, Eva acted with courage and commitment, giving her life for the protection of her fellow Californians.”
In the close-knit, “brotherhood” world of firefighting, Schicke’s death was a devastating loss.”- the San Francisco Chronicle.
