This is another of the grave markers from the Beth Bleinheim cemetery. This one is not in Hebrew

What I see is

S LEA de ARUA
MORENO HENRIQUES
O1 E de ????? NO,S
PAREIO DESIE
MUNDO PARA
IR A GOZAHDA
FIEIA GLORIA

This cemetery is one where Jews came after they left Portugal and went first to Holland and then to Curacao. So it may be Yiddish or Portugese or Dutch or Papiamentu

4/7/2013 8:04 PM I couldnt capture all the words but basically it says:

Sra Lea De Aron Moreno Henriques
.....80 anios
Pertio deste mundo para ir a gozar da eterna gloria


Note: Portuguese jews did not speak Yiddish but either Portuguese or Ladino and this is written in Ladino with a mix of portuguese
4/7/2013 8:35 PM So is that approximately something like

Here lies
Aron Moreno Henriques
80 years
and then something about going to eternal glory?

Pertio deste mundo para ir a gozar da eterna gloria

4/7/2013 9:20 PM It is for Mrs. Lea de Aron Moreno Henriquez, not Aron but his wife
4/7/2013 9:21 PM ..left this world to enjoy eternal glory
4/8/2013 5:11 PM Lea was Aron's wife
