Obituary of Dawn J. Scull

Please share a memory of Dawn to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Dawn Scull, age 57, of Ocean View, New Jersey, passed away peacefully with her sister Tammie and best friend John by her side on May 25th, 2023 after a courageous battle with cancer.


Born in Somers Point, New Jersey, on September 29, 1965 Dawn grew up with her sister and parents in Egg Harbor Township.


She was a dedicated Upper Township Board of Education employee for 35 years.


Dawn was a beautiful soul and free spirit and a lover of nature. Her happiest moments were when she was walking on the beach and being outdoors. She loved all of God’s creatures, big and small. She also loved anything lunar. During a full moon, she would often be outside reciting a money prayer passed down by her mother while holding an open purse. It was believed that good fortune would come your way by doing so.


Another pastime Dawn regularly enjoyed was going to rock concerts with her sister and nieces. They would often dress the part of whichever artist they saw that evening. People would stop and compliment them and even ask for pictures.


She was a powerful and determined woman who never let her illness define her. Even when the cancer overtook her body, she always looked beautiful. Now she is a beautiful angel who will always watch over us.


She is survived by her only son Adam Shough; her sister and best friend, Tammie (Ken) Vitullo; her Grandson, Ashton Shough; Granddaughter, Leighonna Shough; her cherished kitty Shadow; her very best friend, John Kohler; Nieces Ashley Vitullo and Priscilla Cantona (Alvin); Nephew Ken Vitullo Jr. (Amanda); Great Niece LillyAnna Vitullo; Great Nephew Ken Vitullo III; Her 4 Great Nieces with who she shared a special bond with Khloe, Scarlett, Cecilia, and Mahalina Dawn Cantona.


Dawn was preceded in death by her mother Marian Camp, and her father Edward Giberson.


Godfrey Funeral Home will provide a graveside service Friday, June 2nd at 11 AM at Seaside Cemetery 559 S. Route 9 Marmora, NJ 08223. Anyone who wishes to share a sweet memory or funny story is welcome to. Dawn had a collection of hats that she loved wearing, and she would encourage anyone attending her service to wear their favorite hat.


In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to various cancer organizations to find a cure for this terrible disease.
