Dr. Jaana Toivari-Viitala

The following Finnish notice is from Wikipedia, to which I applied Google Translate:

http://www.loviisansanomat.net/loviisan-museointendentti-egyptologi-jaana-toivari-viitala-on-kuollut/

Here is the translation:

https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fi&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.loviisansanomat.net%2Floviisan-museointendentti-egyptologi-jaana-toivari-viitala-on-kuollut%2F

If that link doesn't work for you, you can apply the top URL to Google translate. The translation is very poor, but at this point I can find no better notice in English. If you do, please forward.

And just in case you, like myself, are not acquainted with
Dr. Toivari-Viitala's work, here is a note from Dr. Terry Moore:

... wrote to me last night and mentioned that Dr. Toivari-Viitala had passed away.  She had been the director of the U of Helsinki excavations at the Village du Col and had published her dissertation about the women of Deir el-Medina.  I found an obituary in Finnish but have not been able to locate any other information. 

And here is a link to her research profile at Helsinki University.
