Headstone A-55

Row 10, Col 14



      The Star of David
We, your sons and your daughters,
Cry upwards lamenting and wailing
Over the sudden departure
Of our dear mother
Mrs. Sarah Bailah
The daughter of R. Hillel for she went
to her eternal resting place, forsaking us
for her eternal resting place on the 10th day of Menachem Av
In the year 5684 (1914)

May her soul be bound up in the bonds of life
