chaya daughter of Mr. Akiva Mordechai
Died
2nd of Nissan 5722
May her soul be bound up for life eternal.

The translation for this tombstone is as follows: "Here lies Chaya Bas/(daughter of) Reb Akiva Mordechai who died on the second day of the Hebrew month of Nisan (followed by the year). May her soul be bound up in the bonds of eternal life".

The honorific title "Reb" preceding her father's double given name is one of respect, but it does NOT imply rabbi. There is NO surname mentioned in Hebrew....Jo

Sorry, my finger slipped when typing your name and I didn't catch it in time....Jo
