This is the gravestone of my paternal grandmother, Ida Lipitz. I'd like to know the name(s) of her father as listed in the Hebrew inscription.

CHAYA FAYGA daughter of Reb Betzalel

======================================================
'Reb' is an honorific; it does not mean rabbi.

Her father's name was Betzalel. This means "in the shadow of G-d", and was the name of the Biblical designer of the Ark and the Tabernacle that was used for worship when the Jews wandered in the desert. I don't know of an equivalent secular name.
