Here is a NY Times obituary and here is her Wikipedia page. I don't know if the couple has profiles. A quick search didn't bring up anything. 

Edit: Added the Finland tag to let the Finnish project know that Paavo Nurmi has no profile.

I checked for iconic Olympians a few weeks ago and could not find a profile for Zatopek either. He sure would be a challenge to connect, but on the other hand it's a pity that so many great champions from many parts of the world don't have profiles.

For instance, Paavo Nurmi doesn't have a profile either.

I created the profile for Paavo Nurmi. He will still need to be connected and have a nice bio written. Anyone feel up to take the bio as I concentrate on connecting him?

I have created profiles for Dana Zátopková and Emil Zátopek. Their profiles are Ingrová-3 and Zátopek-1.

At this stage, the only prospect of connecting them to the global tree is through Dana. She was the goddaughter and possibly relative of Czech army general Sergěj Ingr, who lived in exile in Paris and died in 1956. I have extracted some information from the Czech Wikipedia pages using Google Translate, but someone with Czech language skills can no doubt find more.
