Herbert N. Meisner

New Berlin, WI -- Herbert N. Meisner, age 90, passed away on Tuesday, May 6, 2014, at Linden Grove, New Berlin, WI.  Herb was born in Bloomer, WI, on August 27, 1923, son of the late Albert and Della (Nee:  Gunderman) Meisner.

During World War II Herb proudly served in the United States Army.  On August 11, 1962, in Greenwood, WI, he was united in marriage to Margaret A.
