Daughter of Mr. Moshe Avraham
Died on the evening of Rosh Chodesh Sivan 5696.
May her soul be bound up for life eternal.

Rosh Chodesh is the beginning of a month (like Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of the year), in this case, the month of Sivan. Since Jewish days begin at sundown, they're telling you that this death was in the evening before the first of the month.
