Dawn M. O’Connor, 87, passed away on 9/2/19 at Bayshore Community Hospital in Hazlet, NJ surrounded by her children.

Dawn’s passion in life was her family. The love for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren was only surpassed by the love she had for her husband, John O’Connor, who passed away in 2008.

She was an “old fashioned,” strong-willed homemaker and mother. She was a constant in all of our lives and a caretaker of many, putting everyone’s needs before her own. Her life revolved around family. We have great memories of the delicious meals she cooked and the special holiday activities she organized for the kids. Dawn could be found on the sidelines at every game cheering on her family. She took great pride in all of their accomplishments. We have so many memories to hold on to and love.

Her legacy is her love. She instilled respect. She believed in all of us and taught us to believe in ourselves. She was always there to lend a helping hand, to cheer us on, encourage us in all of our endeavors, and celebrate our successes. She will be missed by her children and their spouses, her grandchildren and their spouses, great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, we kindly ask that any donations be made in Dawn’s memory to her favorite charity - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital - or to the charity of your choice.
