Headstone F-16

Row 1, Col 17

Magen David
   Here lies buried
A modest woman
 Endearing Mrs.
Hayah Tumim (Hebrew for pure, innocent)
The daughter of R. Mordechai
She went to her eternal rest
With a good name and fully satisfied
On the 3rd of Mar Heshvan
In the year 5693 (19130
May her soul be bound in the bonds of life
