Woman of glorious valor

She did good all of her days
Pure, upright and pleasant
in her deeds
May her soluld be bound in the everlasting bond of life

The final Hebrew line translates as the equivalent to "May her SOUL be bound up in the bonds of eternal life."

On the bottom, in German: Born (as) Seligmann. Born October 18, 1874. After that is probably the date of death, which is either May 29, 1936 (or 1956). I am more inclined to think that it was 1936 and before WW2, but use your judgement.....Jo
