To be precise:

Here lies

RIVKAH, daughter of Reb Chayim.

The abbreviation in front of her father's name is read as "Reb", not as "Rabbi".  And, as indicated, Reb is an honorific.

Had he been a rabbi, there would have been one of several different abbreviations preceding his name.

Hi June,
The hebrew is:
Here lies
Rivka daughter of Chaim.

Have a nice day,

"Here rests Rivka, Rabbi Chaim's daughter"
Rabbi in this context is an honorific term only.

I'm hoping Minnie's father's name appears here.
