Toya Thompson Finzel, 83, passed away Tuesday, March 5, 2019, at her home in Rixeyville, with two of her daughters by her side.

She was born on May 2, 1935, in Washington, D.C. , to the late Mary W. and George Mark “Tommy” Thompson.

Toya graduated in 1955 from Garfield Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. She worked as a registered nurse at Garfield Memorial Hospital, Columbia Hospital for Women in Washington, D.C., and Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church.

Toya attended St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Warrenton and was a secular Franciscan. She was a longtime auxiliary member of the Legion of Mary. After retirement, Toya greatly enjoyed volunteer work; she volunteered for Fauquier Health, the Fauquier County Food Distribution Coalition and Brookside Nursing Home. Toya sponsored several children in Central America and one elder in Africa through Unbound.

Toya received excellent care from the nurses at Fauquier Hospital Infusion Center and Capital Caring Hospice.

She is survived by her five children, Lewis Jack Finzel of Oakland, California, Laura Evans of Menlo Park, California, Colleen Jackson of Wilmington, Delaware, Jacki Finzel of Rixeyville, and Sharon Finzel of Carrollton, Georgia; nine grandchildren; four great-grandchildren, and her brother Steven A.
