Dr. Jaana Toivari-Viitala

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

Here is the translation:

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.
