Balance of family test

Hi everyone,

I have a question about family test.

My mum is widowed and her husband passed away a few years ago.

My mum gave birth to me and my brother. My question is her deceased husband has a daughter who is over 30yo and has her family and kids.

Should she be counted as my mum's step child? On the immi website, it says stepchild should be the current partner's child, or under 18yo with parental responsibility. My mum is widowed, should her husband be her ex-partner? Not current i guess?

My understanding is she is my mum's ex-stepdaughter. She should not be counted. Can anyone let me know if i am right? Many thanks!!!
