Headstone G-29

Row 4, Col 2

Here lies buried
A dear woman
And among women,  modest
And among the poor       [she tended to?]
Those who were sick  [      ] holiness
[And God-fearing] Mrs. Tzviyah
the daughter of our teacher R Naptali
          [T]aditz
She departed with a good name
          on the sixth
Day of the month of Nisan
In the year 5639 (1879)
May her soul be bound in the bonds of life
