Gifts & Memorial Donations



Tammy Rojek, born Tammy Marie Shuck, March 18, 1963 in Grants, NM to parents James Boatler Shuck, and Flora Gonzales, went peacefully to the Father on February 1 after a courageous battle with breast cancer. After graduating from Lafayette Highschool in 1981 she pursued several career paths while raising her two boys, for a period as a single mom. In 1988 Tammy joined the College of William and Mary bookstore. Then in 1996 she joined the City of Williamsburg, Public Works Department serving as the Assistant to the Public Works Director, a position she held for almost 25 years. Tammy worshiped at the New Town United Methodist Church where she faithfully served on the Leadership Board for 6 years, and served with husband Fred in the Family Life Marriage Ministry for almost 15 years.

She is preceded in death by father James Shuck, and first husband Timothy Sarver. She is survived by a marvelously large and loving family to include: husband of 16 years, Fred Rojek (whom she married because he was “tougher than the rest”), mother Flora Mullen, step-father John Mullen, sister Carol Marley; sons Christopher Sarver and wife Amanda, and Andrew Sarver and wife Shannon; step-daughters Lauren Tepaske and Husband Marcus, Audra Rojek, and Maura Wyrick and husband Jason; grandchildren Rowan and Elijah Sarver, Sophie and Ella Sarver, Jacob Ford, Alexandra and Josephine Tepaske, and Holden, Hailynne and Dominic Wyrick; nephew Chase Marley and nieces Cassie Marley and Cara Toward.

Tammy enjoyed life to fullest. Known for her kindness, sense of humor and contagious smile, she loved and spent much time with her large and constantly growing family, and was a devoted “Gigi” to her ten grandchildren. Her service to City of Williamsburg included HRGreen (known as the “Green Queen”), and service on several environmental education committees. She enjoyed the movies, music, travel, hiking, camping, the beach, and most of all spending time with her many and beloved friends. Above all she loved and worshiped the Lord Jesus typically through dancing and singing to her favorite Christian music. Tammy was a beautiful soul who blessed the life of anyone fortunate enough to have known her.

In-person viewing will be held at Bucktrout of Williamsburg, Saturday, February 6 from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. A closed service will be held Sunday, February 7. A private interment will take place Monday, February 8. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation Inc.

    I am heartbroken but also know that her faith was her driver in every way and we all need to take the many lessons that we learned from her beautiful shining light and be grateful for all of the many special moments we shared with her. I am so blessed to have known her and can honestly say that my life is better now for some very important guidance she gave me in recent years. I worked with Tammy as a partner for many years on local litter and recycling projects. We were part of a close-knit community and this loss is being felt across all of Hampton Roads. She made a tremendous difference in the world and my heart goes out to her wonderful family (who she praised and gushed about incessantly!). Such a beautiful woman...I will see that big smile and those bright eyes and hear that sweet voice every time I need to listen for some inspiration... Prayers to the family and thank you for sharing her with us.

    I met Tammy years back. I dealt with her on many occasions. She was always kind and considerate and helped me on so many things. I just found out today of her passing and it brought tears. She was a lovely person. I am sorry for her untimely passing and extend my best to her entire family

    We were blessed to know Tammy through church. She was always offering a helping hand with her beautiful smile. She was so kind and thoughtful, and such a joy to be around. Tammy will be missed by so many. We are praying for you Fred and your families as you grieve and miss Tammy. May our Lord hold you, guide you, give you hope and peace, and provide people along the journey to help you.
