Helen or Mary Helen Steinberger Family Genealogy
The 5 girls of Samuel and Catherine Steinberger:
Helen Muriel (Hoffman) Gondeck
Photo from Georgene Gahan Cole,
This is Aunt Helen Steinberger Hoffman's daughter,
Linda Zapp: She was the daughter of Daniel M. "Dan" Hoffman and
Helen Marie/Mary (Steinberger) Hoffman. She lived in Elmhurst, IL
in 1947, Chicago, IL in 1972 and at one time Sante Fe, NM. I have a
copy of Helen (Steinberger) Hoffman's obituary from the LaPorte (IN)
Herald-Argus (1947). There is a little confusion over the name.
Helen's obituary identified her as Mrs. Alfred Gandeck and one
grandson, Gail Gandeck, but in the History of St. Patrick's (Page
193), there is a photo of "Helen Hoffman nee Steinberger" "Donated
by Muriel Hoffman Gondeck". (This is a different book on St.
Patrick's than the ones you bought at the cemetery office. I found
the book in the Madison Library and it is very thick and very big.)
