Comment:Natalija Joksimović (1880–1956) was the third-oldest daughter of Mileva and Nikola Joksimović from the town of Arandjelovac. In 1891 she moved to Belgrade, where she lived with her aunt and uncle and received a higher education ('Viša Ženska Škola', High School for Women, founded in 1863 to train teachers for the girls' schools). She became a teacher and at the age of 23 she married the engineer Jova Zrnić, with whom she had two daughters and four sons. She was widowed in 1918, after which she remarried. Her second husband was Đorđe (George) Matić, whom she also outlived. Her diary, titled "Natalija: Life in the Balkan Powder Keg, 1880–1956", has been published with an introductory study.
