Obituary for Sidney Miedema

SHERBURNE: Sidney Miedema, 79, of Castle Hill Rd., passed away Wednesday, October 17, 2018 at his home.
He was born April 6, 1939 in Wons, Netherlands, the eldest of ten children of the late Oega and Wietske Tiglhelaar Miedema, receiving his education in local schools. The family moved to the United States in 1956, settling in Sussex, County, NJ. Sidney was a farmer in Sussex until moving to Wallkill in 1960. On June 6, 1964, Sidney married Betty Jane Hosking in Sussex, NJ. He worked for a feed company in Pennsylvania until moving back to Sussex when Betty’s dad became ill, and for 18 years, he worked for the Fetzer Fast Freight Company. In 1983, he started dairy farming with his son, John, in New Jersey. They moved to Sherburne in 1987 and started Dutch Lane Farms where he retired in 2004.
