Leopoldina "Leo" Dobrzensky-Dobrzenicz (nee Lobkowicz)

March 18, 2021

Obituary

Peacefully with her daughter by her side on Thursday evening, March 18, 2021 at Haliburton Hospital in her 95th year. Beloved wife of the late Jenda Dobrzensky. Loving mother of John, Zdislava and Margaret. Fondly remembered by her grandchildren Anna, Jan, Leopoldine and Sophie and by her great grandchildren Jan, Paul, Eugenie, Zitha, Sarah, Alice, Mathilde, Astrid, Alexandre and Gabriel. Predeceased by her daughter Helen, her son Charles, and by sisters Maria, Amalie, Rosa and by her grandson Edward.

Our family mourns this exceptional woman who overcame tremendous upheavals throughout her life and always with dignity and courage. Her generous & warm hearted spirit found enjoyment in countless areas - but especially, in gardening, painting and in classical music. She loved & embraced the Haliburton Highlands - whose natural beauty & people inspired her to write two books on its history Fragments Of A Dream - Pioneering In Dysart Township and Haliburton Village and They Worked and Prayed Together - Italians In Haliburton County. Her legacy also lives on in the donation of Barnum Creek Nature Reserve  and in the many lives that she so gently touched.
