This is the death record for my great-great-grandfather's wife before he married my great-great-grandmother. I'd love a full translation, please, so that I can learn as much as I can. Thank you!!

died today at 6 a.m. Hane nee Szafir Kroll, age 36, leaving husband Lajb, a daylaborer, and two children.
[the clerk initially left out the '30' portion of 36 so that's what's in the margin]
8/18/2016 6:15 AM 12. It came to pass in Kalisz on the sixteenth day of February in the year of one thousand eight hundred and sixty-seven, at the hour of three in the afternoon. Appeared personally Lajzer Wajs, a szkolnik, and Fabjan Krotoski, a shtadlan, both of them sixty-nine years of age, and they declared that Hane Kroll, née Szafir, thirty-six years of age, had deceased on that day, at the hour of six in the morning, leaving behind her her husband Lajb, a day-labourer, and her two children. After her departure was visually ascertained, the present certificate was drawn up and signed.

NOTES: *Please note the spelling of this surname used by a civil registrar (Krotoski) is somewhat different from the one used by the signatory himself (Krotowski).
