Passed away peacefully February 10, 2020, comforted with unconditional love from Mom, and family by her side. Danielle will be forever missed by Mom Louise, brother Joe, her wonderful son's Jaxson (5 yrs.) & Jayden (4 yrs.), and beautiful niece Emma.
Danielle is at peace. Her kind and gentle soul is in the loving hands of God, and the Angels; late father Joe Sr. (2016); maternal grandmother Mary Bunk (2019); paternal grandparents Frank & Aleksandra Blazik; Aunt (Chocha) Irene (2019), cousin Kathy (2017) & Uncle Frank (2013) Blazik.
Danielle is deeply loved, and will be sadly missed by Aunts Lorraine, Teresa, and Diane, Uncle James, cherished friend, and special cousin Maria; cousins Rob, Brian and families (Toronto); special cousins Stella & Tracy in SK; as well as BF's Ania, Ana, Mel, and Joanne. Danielle was blessed to have loving, and supportive godparents, Barbara & Joe Ruggiero.
Danielle was "over the moon" with the birth of her boys Jaxson, and Jayden who she loved so much. Together time was spent out in nature, walking trails, and playing catch by the lake.
Since it "takes a village" to raise children to be happy, and healthy, it will take all of us including family, friends, and amazing teachers and management at The Holy Trinity School to stay connected, and continue loving, guiding, and caring for the boys.
A little about Danielle: Loving, kind, caring, happy, helpful, and friendly. She had natural ability to make friends easily, and touched the lives of everyone she met including co-workers at RIM (Blackberry), George Brown College, Travel College Canada, and Canadian Centre for Skills Development over the course of her short life. As a part time employability skills trainer for At-risk/priority youth, Danielle loved working and helping those ready to commit to transitioning into mainstream society to gain suitable sustainable employment. She would light up the room with her beautiful smile, wherever she went.
In 1988, at the age of 7, Danielle was among the youngest to be Reiki trained and certified in The Authentic Usui System, the Official Radiance Technique. She would do Reiki energy healing on herself before exams; when she wasn’t feeling well, and on her cat!
For schooling, Danielle went to High Park Montessori, Bishop Allen Academy, and studied Psychology, and Sociology for two years at York University. She also studied Forensic Anthropology at George Brown College along with her Mom. Danielle loved the highly detailed field of forensics especially analyzing homicide cold cases. She was an A student excelling by dedication, interest, and focused learning.
Interests and sports over the years included jazz and ballet from age 7 with her still BF Ana; Tae Kwon Do with brother Joe, and Mom; playing community baseball from age 4 up to adulthood, proudly playing on her Dad's work team often outscoring him!
Family vacations included weekend camping, cross country skiing, trips on roads less travelled, and visiting many places around the world. Danielle quickly learned, and appreciated, no matter where you are in the world, we are all pretty much the same!
Danielle was a great cook, organizer, and amazing helper around the house. Mom misses her terribly.
For many years, and from a young age, Danielle, along with brother Joe, and Mom helped out at the Food Bank. This was humbling, helped us deepen compassion, and it was our honour to serve those in need
Gift of Life: Years ago, Danielle registered with Trillium Gift of Life www.beadonor.ca so following her death, multiple healthy organs were successfully transplanted to three recipients who now have opportunity to live a healthy life. An admirable loving achievement for a young person.
To share the blessings in your life, we encourage everyone to register online at www.beadonor.ca as someday, you may have the honour to be called upon to give the Gift of Life or may need a Gift of Life.

With Endless Love to my beautiful son’s Jaxson & Jayden,
& to My Mom Louise, and Brother Joe from Mommy Danielle
Last Journey (written by Timothy Coore)
There is a train at the station
With a seat reserved just for me
I’m excited about its destination
As I’ve heard it sets you free
The trials and tribulations,
pain and stress
Don’t exist where I am going
Only peace, love, and happiness
It’s not a journey you can join in
It’s not your time today
My family is waiting
Who took an earlier train
They will greet me with love
and wrap their arms around me
We’ll catch up on the past
and build a new beginning
One day you’ll take your journey
On the train just like me
And I promise I’ll be there
At the station you will see
Life is just a journey
Enriched by those you meet
Until then I’ll be watching over you
With Endless Love to my darlin’ Danielle, our little Butterfly, from Mom
You Never Said Goodbye
You never said I’m leaving
You never said goodbye.
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why.
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place,
That no one could ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.

“You are always one decision away
from a totally different life”
