It seems that there is a surname, and first name is Asher... any idea of surname and the death year?
From Bendery Cemetery project.
Thanks,

2/24/2013 5:14 PM I can see something else:
Here lies
The wife of Rabbi Avram/Efraim? Asher....
2/25/2013 8:58 AM The arched text says:
Here an honored and honest woman (isha nikhbada vyehsara)found rest.

Her name, in very large letters in the center seems to me to be Zlate daughter of Tsvi.

Then I see "Wife of Reb Avraham" and then something like "Azofni", definitely not Asher.
2/27/2013 8:31 AM It is Zlate indeed, but the father's name looks much more like "Yitzhak" to me. Also, the husband is called "Avraham Azarny", with "Azarny" being his surname, as below you can see an inscription in Cyrillic, saying "Zlota Azarnaya". As you most probably are aware, "Azarnaya" is a female version of "Azarny".

There is a date too, but I cannot decipher it from this photograph.

Best regards,
Witold Wrzosinski
