Looking for the name of a righteous gentile in Vienna who died approximately 1980-1985 #austria-czech #general #holocaust

Hello, I want to help honor a righteous gentile who hid my family from the Nazis in 1939.  I met her in Vienna in about 1980 and she was close to 100 years old.  She lived at 12 Tandelmarktgasse and had been the superintendent of the building beginning probably in early 1930's.  Her last name was Stepanek but I don't know her first name.  I searched the Zentralfriedhof but looks like there are a few possibilities.  Any suggestions for finding her first name? Are there telephone directories from the 1970's that might list her name?

Her husband Ferdinand Stepanek, shoemaker, in 1938 was the "Hausbesorger" in Tandelmarktgasse 12; see "Lehmann online" 1938, vol. 2, "Hausparteien" via address; "E" stands for houseowner, "H" for "Hausbesorger". He was born 21-Aug-1883 and was buried at Vienna Zentralfriedhof 15a-11-21 7-Feb-1949. His wife Anna was borb 12-Apr-1883 and was buried there 27-Feb-1978, also a son Ferdinand jun., born 21-Feb-1904, died 24-Aug-1941 in Castellezgasse 12.
