6/30/2014 10:11 AM Here lies our dear mother,
pure (upright) and honest
who was the joy of our hearts
tears will flow from our eyes
consolation will not be found
from our great loss
From her pure hands
the poor were sated
She kept away predators
with blessings from her mouth
Shayna Basha Rubinstein, daughter of Shlomo
died 5 Adar 2, 5698
May her soul be bound up in the bonds of eternal life

Note a vertical acrostic of the large letters on the right also spell out Shayne Basha.

Best,
Madeleine Isenberg
6/30/2014 6:23 PM Here lies our dear mother
The wholesome and the upright
Ceased [to live] the joy of our hearts
Lowered to the earth our crown
Tears flow from our eyes
Comfort how is found
Over our great loss
With her pure hands
The poor she satiated
She sent food to their homes
Along with blessings of her mouth
Shayna Basha Rubenstein
daughter of Reb Shlomo
She passed away five Adar II 5698
May her soul be bound in the binding of life
