Tammy Brobst-Burke

June 19, 1971 — October 1, 2023

Tammy Brobst-Burke, 52, of Trucksville, passed away October 1, 2023. Born in 1971 at Tyler Memorial Hospital in Tunkhannock. Tammy was born the last of seven children, which she utilized to her advantage throughout the course of her life (ask her siblings). Tammy is preceded in death by her parents Grace and Larry Brobst, and her sisters Molly Brobst and Maureen Morgan. Surviving siblings are Bonnie (Patrick) Cavavanugh, Lorena (Brian) Langan, Donald (Susan) Brobst, Larry (Karen) Brobst. Tammy was also known as Brobst, Tammy Two Bum, Bummer, Tambo, and Yukon Tammy was known to some as ‘the life of the party’ and to others as a loving sister, aunt, and friend.

Tammy was known for a lot of things to a lot of people. an avid hunter and fisher throughout her life, always taking her nephews out during deer and small game seasons. A die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fan, which she was overjoyed to finally see them win a ring. Tammy used to be known for having the alcohol tolerance of five grown men and could hang with the best of them, calming down in her later years. She was an avid lover of all things Jeff Gordon (fitting as she passed at 2:24 PM), and no stranger to the infield at Pocono Raceway. Tammy adored all animals, hers being Skyler, Abby, Snowball, JJ, Nermal, and Jasmine to name a few. Most importantly, Tammy was known for having a huge heart.

Tammy loved to spend her time with her nieces and nephews and in no particular order they are Lucas, Josh, Justin, Markie, Lorena, Colton, Kayla, Amanda, and last but not least Meghan (also dubbed ‘booger’ by Tammy). It would not be out of the norm on any given weekend seeing Tammy out and about with any assortment of the above-named loved ones doing something that may or may not get her into trouble with their parents. Tammy put an emphasis on making memories with her nieces and nephews, and for that they are eternally grateful.

Tammy let it be known that she would not want anyone to be sad, and in fact would want everyone to cherish their memories with her and celebrate her life. Tammy lived her life on her own terms, unafraid of judgement from others. In parting, one of Tammy’s favorite artists summed up Tammy’s life philosophy well “I never said I wanted to be around for a long time. I always wanted to be here for a good time”-Kid Rock.

A Celebration of Tammy’s life will be held at a later date for close Family members.

Arrangements are entrusted to Nulton Kopcza Funeral Home, 5749 S.R. 309, Beaumont, Monroe Twp.
