Hi Rollo! I confirm everything I have found today.
Married, she played as Volavkova, not Volovkova.
The czech female surnames follow rules that are strange for us. In this case Volavka becomes Volavkova. (The years between brackets that I have put are the birthyears of her husbands.)
You can see these links:

for her birthyear (where there is also the name of Jan Volavka, her first husband):
