Dawn Marie Giobbie Ignarra, 59, of Millstone passed away on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at Capital Health System, Trenton. She was born and raised in the New Dorp section of Staten Island, and had lived in Brick prior to settling in Millstone in 2002.

In retirement, Dawn returned to work post-911 with a bomb dog in Manhattan. She was also the President of I Tech Services of Millstone since 1999. Dawn was a member of the NY City PBA, the Federal Order of Police, and the Jersey Shore 10-13 Association.
