Obituary for Barbara S. Sikma

Barbara Sikma 62, Oconto passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, November 10, 2022. She was born April 8, 1960, in Oconto to the late Glenn and Marilyn (Retzlaff) Snyder. She was a graduate of Oconto High School in the Class of 1978. Barb married Don Sikma on November 29, 1980. She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Oconto where she served in many capacities, including a decade as the church secretary. She worked at Oconto Elementary School since 2008 where she’s enjoyed helping hundreds of young children get ready for kindergarten. The thing Barb loved most was spending time with her grandkids, whether it was in Wausau or at home playing in the pool and on the deck. She also loved working with the “4K gals” at school. She enjoyed pontoon boat rides, crossword puzzles, and sweets… especially all kinds of cake and Hershey’s chocolate.


Surviving are her husband Don; two children Renee (Aaron) Wallin, Wausau and Ryan Sikma, Green Bay; two beloved grandchildren Jillian and Bryson Wallin; one sister Judy (Rick) Weston, Lena; her mother-in-law Shirley Sikma, Oconto; and many other family and dear friends. She was preceded in death by her sister, Becky Baranczyk.


The family will receive relatives and friends at the Gallagher Funeral Home, Oconto, from 4 to 8 PM Tuesday, November 15, 2022. Visitation will continue on Wednesday, November 16, from 10 to 11 AM at First Presbyterian Church, Oconto. Memorial services will be conducted 11 AM Wednesday at the church with the Rev. Craig Alwin officiating. Online condolences may be expressed at www.gallagherfuneralhome.net.


In lieu of flowers memorials may be given to Bread by the Bay food pantry.
