This is another view of Leah Goldfarb's headstone in case it is more legible in this view.

Once again, we are looking for the translation of the Hebrew information at the top.

On  Response 
4/19/2012 5:49 AM First line: died on (Hebrew date illegible)
Second line Tanzaba - Hebrew abbreviation for May her soul rest in peace
4/24/2012 10:28 AM Died 22 Kislev 5713 נפטרה כ"ב כסלו תשי״ג
The Hebrew date of 22 Kislev translates into Gregorian calendar as 10th of December, 1952 and not 9th of December. Based on Hebrew calendar the day ends at sunset. Thus, If she passed away before sunset would be 21st of Kislev (9th of December) and if she passed away after sunset would be 22 of Kislev ( 10th of December).
I think it would depend of how orthodox the cemetery was at the time of burial to ask the children at what time she passed away or whomever did the tombstone.
