Obituary

Delphia Jean Sikes passed away on April 21, 2020. It was a sad day, but it was a happy day, too. For years she had been saying, “I want to go home.” She's home now.

Delphia was born to George and Anna Pettitt on November 15, 1926 in Muskogee, Oklahoma. She was the youngest of three brothers and two sisters. Just as her husband who passed before her, she was the last surviving member of her family.

Delphia definitely had her likes and dislikes. She loved the home she made for herself, her husband, and her children. She didn’t like to be away from it. She was content letting others take the stage, even though she herself made it possible.

The word heard most often to describe her was sweet. She was her husband’s sweetheart. But she was also feisty. She was nobody’s doormat. She loved dearly and as the old yearbook saying goes…

2 Sweet
2 B
4 Gotten

She married Oren Sikes in 1942. He worked and she stayed home. As kids, when you heard Steel Guitar Rag, you knew Leon was on TV. Later on it became, “Guiding Light,” which she shared episodes of with her oldest daughter, Lana, by telephone. While these shows were on, the ironing board was set up and the clothes were being pressed to a T. Even when it was freezing outside, her son’s jeans were on the line being freeze-dried. She was the one who kept it all running smoothly. Delphia made everyone happy.

In later years it became gifts and cards for the grandkids. Everyone loved the holidays. Her meals were wonderful and her thoughtfulness abounded. Holidays with Delphia were always looked forward to.

Delphia is survived by her daughters, Lana Dennis and Karen England; son, Oren Sikes, Jr.; ten grandchildren, Cindy, Darrin, Tina, Jeremy, Jessamy, Amber, Ashley, Cameron, Kyle, Grant and fifteen great grandchildren.

A private family graveside service will be held at Memorial Park Cemetery in Muskogee, Oklahoma under the direction of Lescher-Millsap Funeral Home.
