Mollie Virginia "Ginger" Sikes

Mollie Virginia (Ginger) Sikes, 78, of Minden, LA went to be with her Lord and Savior, surrounded by her family, on April 6, 2024, after a valiant battle with cancer and a stroke. Ginger was born January 29, 1946, in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Ginger was preceded in death by her parents, William (Bill) David Walker, Sr., Evelyn Baird Walker, and her brother William (Billy) David Walker, Jr.  

She is survived by her devoted husband, Dillard Sikes of 22 years, sons Rickie (Charlene) Williams, and Mike (Caronda) Williams, step-daughter Rebecca Sikes Merritt, step-son Kerry Sikes, grandchildren Leslie (Josh) Utley, Lauren (Zach) Davis, Walker (Cammy) Williams, Chris (Kelly) Garcie, Hayden (Hannah) Williams, and Trevor (Kathryn) Williams, great grandchildren Kara, Leah, Baleigh, Keaton, Huxley and Holland Garcie, Maxwell and Benjamin Utley, Bodhi and Regan Williams, Hollyn Kate Williams, and sister Bonnie (Lloyd) Matson, brothers and sisters-in-law Grover (Lisha) Sikes, Elisha (Dal) Taylor, and Lavetra Johnson, and a whole host of friends.

Ginger began her career in 1979 working at Webster Bank.   She remained there as the bank changed names to Minden Bank and Regions Bank and retired after 30 years of service. Ginger was dearly loved by all of her customers and left a lasting impact on each of their lives.

Ginger was a member of Calvary Baptist Church and enjoyed helping serve meals to the children on Wednesday nights.  She loved fishing and going to the beach.  She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend.  To her husband, she was a devoted partner and friend.  As a single mother she worked tirelessly to raise two wonderful sons.   As a daughter and sister, she cared for her parents and brother to their very last moment on Earth. To be loved by her was a treasure!   She was loyal, selfless, and would do anything required to help someone she loved.    Ginger will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
