She gave charity and grace, she holds out her hand to the poor, our modest (humble) mother, Chaya daughter of Chaim, the wife of Baruch son of Israel Berger, Passed away* 21 of Tevet 5'674, R, I, P, (literally: may her soul be bound up in the bond of everlasting life)
* Before the date there are 3 letters ינב which  I don't know their meaning in this context (I looked up and did not find any relevant Hebrew abbreviations except יגן עלינו- will protect us) so I assumed it referred to the death date.
21 of Tevet 5'674 is  19th of January 1914
all the best
