This is Aunt Helen Steinberger Hoffman's daughter,

 From 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.) 
I found in the Social Security Death Index a Helen Gondeck born April 28, 1907 died September 18, 1994 last residence Sante Fe, NM issued IL.  Also Alfred J. Gondeck born August 10, 1909 died February 13, 1998 last residence Tesuque, Sante Fe Co., NM issued Michigan.
