Chris and Jeff Roth have joined her father, Thor, in the operation of Thorson Funeral Home in Viroqua.

Chris and Jeff graduated from Viroqua High School in 1989. Chris then graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and Jeff graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout.

Jeff Roth graduated from the Worsham School of Mortuary Science in Wheeling, Ill., this past March. He is completing his apprenticeship this year. Chris Roth will be office manager.

The Roths reside in rural Viroqua with their seven daughters and one son.

Chris grew up helping in the funeral home while a high school student, and is very familiar with the challenges of serving families at difficult times. Also assisting at the funeral home are Valdo “Pete” Gilman and Joseph Luke Kleiber, who although not licensed, assist in many aspects of the funeral home operation.
