Cassandra Brunshaw obituary and dead,  currently pursuing a career in the Sports industry death

Cassandra and I are currently carving out our paths in the sports industry. My journey in this realm has been enriched by the acquisition of a Postgraduate Certificate in Sports Business Management from Durham College. Additionally, I gained valuable hands-on experience during a four-month internship at Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, where I was immersed in the dynamic world of sports management from January to April in 2012. Presently, I contribute to Toronto FC’s Match Operations in a part-time capacity.

The pursuit of one’s dream job, while often challenging, is by no means insurmountable. The outcome is intrinsically linked to the level of determination and effort one is willing to invest. Personally, I consider myself a highly focused individual, guided by the aphorism, “If you don’t take the shot, you’re guaranteed to miss.” Remember, the journey towards realizing your dreams should never be abandoned.

In the words of the venerable Jerry Rice, “Today I will do what no one else is doing so that tomorrow I can achieve what no one else can.” These words serve as an enduring source of inspiration and motivation.

On a different note, it is with a heavy heart that we share the passing of Angelique Bernadette Debets (née Speet) on January 22, 2023, a date that coincided with her 90th birthday. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 59 years, John. Both John and Angelique hailed from the Netherlands, where they were born and raised. In 1961, Angelique embarked on a journey to Canada, where she married John. Together, they established their home in Oakville, nurturing and raising their five children on Rebecca Street.

Angelique’s life was a testament to her unwavering commitment to her family. She exhibited remarkable skill as a seamstress and found joy in knitting. Long, contemplative walks and the daily ritual of sharing a nutritious home-cooked meal with her family held a special place in her heart. Angelique was a devoted member of the St. Dominic CWL and dedicated countless hours as a volunteer for Special Olympics bowling.

She leaves behind a legacy cherished by her children: Dorie Schaad (Johannes December), Timothy Debets (Linda), Sandra Yerian (Geoffrey), O. Nestor Debates (Mary), and Andrew Debates (Tracy).

Angelique’s memory lives on through her grandchildren: Stephanie Coleman (Peter), Cassandra Sand, Christopher Sand (Katie), Alexander Derbez, Nicholas Derbez, Katrina Richardson (Lyon), Aaron Hill (Dalena), Matthew Hill, and Damien Yerian (Salem). She held a special place in the heart of her beloved granddaughter, Hannah Yerian, as well as her great-grandchildren: Wren Richardson, Clinton Morris, Camden Morris, Everett Hill, Madeline Coleman, Ella Debes-Reed, and Bailey Mullins.

Angelique is survived by her sister, Johanna Smonnars (Peter), as well as three brothers residing in Holland, in addition to numerous nieces and nephews.

Her radiant smile and warm presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

Friends and family are invited to pay their respects at the Kopriva Taylor Community Funeral Home, located at 64 Lakeshore Rd W, Oakville, on Thursday, February 9, between 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. A Funeral Mass in honor of Angelique will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, February 10, at St. Dominic’s Church, situated at 2415 Rebecca St., Oakville.
