I would like a transliteration of the Yiddish/Hebrew signature to the right of this image.

The lady's English name was Kate BENJAMIN or WISLA or WEISLA or VESTLAR or WEISS. Her name in Poland was Gittl WISLA. Her Hebrew name was Gittel bat Yosef Halevi

Thank you

It can be that the letter that I think it is a WAW is perhaps the letter LAMED

I think that iname is then Getille or Getele.
