I realize the quality of this image is not great. I downloaded it from jewishdata.com. However, I am hoping that someone may be able to be translate the gravestone from Hebrew to English.
Thank you, Kathy Lorber

10/25/2012 6:21 PM What I can make out of the English on the stone is MOTHER MARY FRIED Died Sept. 29, 1918 Aged 40 years
That should at least provide a start.
10/26/2012 9:02 PM (the picture looks like it has been sharpened, excessively, in software, which has emphasized every little irregularity in the stone, and created false letters.)

what little i can read:

"here is buried
the woman, important and dear
menshie (?) daughter of mr yaakov the kohen
[...]"
10/28/2012 9:56 AM I can't make out the first line after the name.
The text then continues:

And her soul left in holiness to the Lord
in Eden xxxxx on the day after Succot 5679. [In transliterated Hebrew: v'yatsa nishmata bi'kdusha la'ribon b'eden xxxxx b'yom issru khag shel succot 5679]
