Dobroslava Simkova

December 18, 1921 ~ March 29, 2019 (age 97)

Dobroslava Simkova passed away March 29, 2019 at the age of 97, surrounded by her family. Dobroslava, known to many as Martha, was born December 18, 1921 in Czechoslovakia to parents Frantisek and Marie Sramek. 

Dobroslava experienced first-hand the Nazi occupation, the Second World War, and the rise of Communism and the Iron Curtain in Czechoslovakia. She moved to California in 1986 to be near her family and lived in Monterey for the past thirty years. 

An avid reader, Dobroslava also enjoyed crossword puzzles, chocolate, and knitting for the whole family. She loved baking Christmas cookies with her granddaughter; Christmas was always her favorite time of year.

Dobroslava is survived by her daughter Sylvie (William), granddaughter Andrea (Matthew), and niece Zuzana. She will be dearly missed by many
