headstone translation - Hebrew #translation



Here lies or here is buried  (2-letter abbreviation on top)

An old and important woman

Esther daugher and mother

Honest and nice were her ways

To the depressed souls she reached out her hands

The dear she was to her acquaintances

Completed  ? her years

Left the life to her sons and  daughters

Illegible last line but looks like the Hebrew date of death

May her soul be gathered in eternal life (last line – abbreviation)

Shalom, Malka Chosnek



In my previous message, I inadvertently omittted the deceased's name: Esther. It should read -
"Here lies an old and esteemed woman, Esther daughter of Aba, .......etc.
