Virginia May Sikora, age 96, of Fairborn, passed away on Sunday, July 31, 2022, at Hospice of Dayton. Virginia was born November 5, 1925, in Huntington, WV, the daughter of Walter G. Protzman and Iva P. (Von Stein) Protzman.
Virginia (known to her family and friends as “Barbara Bush”) lived an exceptional life. She was a devoted wife, proud mother, and dedicated grandmother. To her family and friends, she was known to have a mischievous sense of humor. She was always accompanied by her pleasant chuckle, delightful smile, and charismatic repertoire of language. Virginia had a special way of engaging her family, especially her daughters. At times it may have bordered on torment, but it was always with the best of intentions and will surely be missed by those closest to her. She was a talented quilter, dedicated gardener, and skilled painter. While family was essential to Virginia, she also appreciated crocheting, traveling, cooking, crossword puzzles, and reading in her free time. Virginia was an avid sports fan; especially a fan of Marshall University where she met her future husband. She was a member of the Delta Sigma Epsilon.
Virginia is preceded in death by her parents, Walter (Iva) Protzman; husband, John Sikora; brothers, Russell Protzman; and Donald Protzman. She is survived by a son, John M. (Nancy) Sikora; two daughters, Rebecca (Becky) Ann Rogers; Patti Lynn (Ed) Bogden; a grandson, John Michael Sikora II; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. Virginia will be laid to rest beside her husband in Greenwood Cemetery, Hamilton, OH. Arrangements in care of Belton-Stroup Funeral Home, Fairborn. In lieu of flowers if desired, memorial donations can be made in Virginia’s name to Hospice of Dayton at www.hospiceofdayton.org or by mail, 324 Wilmington Ave, Dayton, OH 45420.
