Need your help; I am still searching for information

I need your help, I am still searching for information about my aunt SADIE maiden name WEISS,(Jewish) she was born about 1890 in Czechoslovakia but at that time it was Hungary, so must have registered as Hungarian . She arrived in New York probably after 1904, she had a brother and a sister in New York.Her brother was Max Weiss (born 1882) ,lived in Manhattan,last known address,Woodside,died 1960 and buried at Mount Hebron cemetery. Her sister, Minnie Weiss ( born 1890) ,arrived in New York 1906, she stayed with her uncle ,Emanuel Schoenberger,according to 1910 census. You have already helped me to find both of them and with your help i traced the grandchildren of Max Weiss and a daughter of Minnie Weiss,who is 88 years old and lives in New York. My father died in 1960 in Czechoslovakia when i was just a very little boy ,so I have very little information of his sibling in the USA, I have just a letter my father wrote to his brother in the 1950s which has been returned to him undelivered, I spoke to his sister daughter and from her I have learnt that my father had another sister in the USA which I never knew about.her name was SADIE. Minnie's daughter told me she married and had a daughter born around 1915-1920 named Helen, I was also told by her that she was mentally ill and unpredictable. Sadie also had a boy born few years later. I don't know Sadie's married name, I was told that she and her husband run a candy store maybe 1940-1950s , from information I got from Max Weiss grand-daughters the candy store was in Amsterdam Avenue. I was told that Sadie's daughter (who was ill) has taken her own life. The family refuses to give me any more information about her, which I believe they , I spoke to them few times
But they don't want to disclose any more details and contact between us ceased .
I need your help if you can help me as I don't know how to go about what the information I have, I tried to find information /records at www. familysearch.org , and the Ellis island passenger records but cannot trace her records.
If you know of any way I can trace her to find out what has happened to her and if there are any living grandchildren.
I will appreciate any help you can extend towards me, and I will be ever grateful to all of you. I hope I will succeed in my search.
thank you.

Martin Weiss (from Slovakia)
