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.
