Translation of gravestone in Petah Tikva - Sgula #translation

Mike Coleman

Could someone (as far as possible) kindly translate into English the inscription on this gravestone.


I believe it to be of Selma Bruckheimer, nee Sonn, the widow of Simon Bruckheimer. indicates the location as Plot ‎יד‎ | Row י | Spot 8 and a translation of the Plot and Row numbers would also be very welcome.


Many thanks,

The Hebrew text gives us no reason to assume the name is Brockheimer and not Bruckheimer.  

Plot 14,  Row 10 -- though the translation won't help anyone who is searching for the physical grave, since the plot and row will be identified in the graveyard by their Hebrew letters.
