help understanding Tombstone inscription #general

Dear Genners,

I am trying to understand something about my great grandmother's tombstone. The
first line reads: he aleph shin het het tzadik lamed vav ayin chet
I think that it means, the woman, the Soloveitch. Am I right? the second line is
her name, Sheina, the third line reads bat reb Yacov Meir

Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you in advance.

Sounds to me that the lamed is a nun, and the chet is a hey. Thus it reads
Ha-Isha Ha-Tzenuah which means "The modest woman".

Miriam,

I can't figure out what it said, are all the letters correct?
Here are two web pages I often use as reference.
