I am sorry for your loss. My mother, Marjorie Helen Brown, formerly Shriver was a Steininger from the Richland Center Community. I do not remember Betty Lou. However, I do remember Ronny Sweeny very well and extend my condolences to your family, whom we are likely related. I am retired now for the past year living in Belgium.
Best Regards,
