Norma Jean Mills, 79, of Viroqua, died Tuesday, October 27th, 2020.  Norma was born on January 4th 1941, to Wilson and Norma Sutherland in Viola. She graduated from Viola High School.

Norma and Arden owned and operated the Red Mound General store for 18 years. People would come from all around for malts and sub sandwiches.  Her family loved her more than she could ever know, and we know she loved us the same. They don't make women like that anymore.
