Family, friends and clients of a young mum and cafe owner who died suddenly after being bullied have remembered her as ‘fun-loving’, ‘cheeky’ and ‘a beautiful soul’.

Karlie Cassidy, 32, who ran the Teaspoons and Aprons cafe in the Beaudesert Fair shopping centre, south of Brisbane, is believed to have taken her life in early July.

Her mother, Sharene Cassidy, wrote an online post claiming Karlie was subjected to bullying ever since opening her cafe on Father’s Day in August 2019.

‘This town holds three people, who bullied her, gossiped about her and… trampled her heart and soul,’ Mrs Cassidy said, according to the Courier Mail.

She said her daughter was so upset by being picked on that she took a week off working in her cafe, adding that the small-town bullies eventually ‘broke’ her daughter.

‘Please beautiful people of this town, be careful who you trust and who you talk to as they will be looking for their next victim.’

Karlie also faced considerable pressure trying to build up her clientele during a pandemic, but was well-liked by her customers.

Sharene and Dave Cassidy paid tribute to their daughter with a moving statement.

‘It brings Dave and I so much sorrow and our hearts have been broken to announce that our beautiful daughter Karlie has quietly passed away,’ she wrote.

‘We wish that your remember her as the fun-loving and always ready with a smile a cheeky grin and sometimes a little pinch on the bottom.

‘She was and always will be a light in our hearts and memories. Her beautiful children are being well cared for and are safe with the family.

‘Our loved for our wonderful daughter will never fade.’

Ms Cassidy’s friend Shinade Harper launched a GoFundMe page to raise money for her three young sons.

Friends and customers of her cafe also paid tribute on social media.

‘I’m so sorry for the lost of your beautiful daughter,’ one woman wrote.

‘She helped me at my low time in life, I wish I could have helped her.’

‘She was and always will be such a beautiful soul, the love she spread will always stay with those she touched, so thankful for the memories I have with her,’ another wrote.

‘Karlie has always been a cheeky bundle of joy and she will be missed,’ one man said.

‘Yesterday, we ventured down to Coles to do our weekly shop again but noticed the cafe was closed. There were so many flowers at the front door with some beautiful words written,’ another woman wrote.

‘If only Karlie knew how much she was loved by so many different people, even people that didn’t know her personally.

‘You just never know the heartache some people are going through, it gets hidden behind a beautiful smile.’
