Can you please interpret the Hebrew into English on this tombstone for me? Does it give her father's name?

Thank you,
Fran Cohen

Fannie Shultz Rubenstein's Hebrew name was Feige Bas/(daughter of) Reb Aryeh Dov, HaCohen. Her father had a double given name of Aryeh Dov. It is followed by HaCohen, which indicates that he was from the line of the Kohanim, the priests in the Temple in Jerusalem. This designation is passed down from father to son, providing that the child is born of a Jewish mother. The word Reb appears in front of the double given names as an honorific title of respect. It does not imply rabbi....Jo
