Obituary

Dawn Vicki Wolfe, 73, of Manasquan, New Jersey, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, October 9, 2020, after a lengthy illness.

Dawn was born on Thursday, May 22, 1947, in Summit, New Jersey, to William and Dorothea Dunkel. She grew up in New Providence and Berkeley Heights, where she graduated from Governor Livingston High School in 1965. Dawn lived in the Meyersville section of Long Hill Township for approximately 30 years. When she and her husband, Richard T. Wolfe, married in 1999, they settled in Millington, and then retired to Manasquan.

Through the years she was a devoted community servant. Dawn was a member of the Meyersville Presbyterian Church and Meyersville Grange. She was also a supporter of her sons, Justin, Jason, and Joshua, in the Long Hill Township Little League, Somerset Hills Soccer Club, Long Hill Township Cub Scouts, Watchung Hills Pop Warner Football, and various activities at Watchung Hills Regional High School. Later on she was a proud member of the “Tea Pots” women’s club, as well as local volleyball and bocce social clubs. Dawn loved to travel with her husband, Richard. Together, they traveled throughout the Caribbean as well as to Alaska on several occasions.

Dawn worked at the Long Hill Township Town Hall for over 30 years. During this time she was the Planning and Zoning Administrator and served on both the Planning Board and the Zoning Board of Adjustment. Dawn was also an active member, and served as the President, of the New Jersey Association of Planning and Zoning Administrators for many years.

Dear Richard and Family. So sorry for your loss.
Grew up with Richard, but knew Dawn briefly, years ago, as my grandparents, mother,and sister Kathy were involved with the Meyersville Presbyterian Church and Grange. I spent a lot of time at both places.
Thoughts and prayers sent your way. May you have many fond memories. Pat Murphy Steege
