Hi, this is supposedly the death record for for an Eidel Smola, though I'm unable to notice the name in the document. I'm assuming that's because Russian letters differ. Presuming that's the right name on this, I'm fairly certain this is my great-great-great-great-grandmother Eidel Smola. I would love a full translation, please--thank you so much for your generous help!

On  Response 
6/12/2014 1:39 AM Death act
Town : Kozo (can also be read Kolo)
Date of the act : 10/22 December 1880
Declarers of the death : two inhabitants of the city, Abraham Zauberman, merchant, 50 years old, and Gutmann Nevolniy, synagogue "student", 53 years old
Date of the death : the previous day,i.e. 09/21 December 1880
Deceased person : Eydel Smola, widow, day worker (i.e. no fixed job, daily payment, probably for domestic services), born and living in the same town of Kozo, 65 years old
The declarers ignore the family name and the given names of the parents or Eydel Smola ; so the act just mentions "names of her parents : unknown".
Act signed by the two declarers and by the burgomaster of the city (responsible for the civil status acts)
