Golda Henna daughter of Reb Moshe
deceased on the Ninth Day of the Month of Av in the 5703 (year since creation) (=1943)

The Hebrew Word for nine is spelled out because traditionally the Ninth Day of Av is the most saddest day of mourning for the Jewish people as it is the day the Holy Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed and the Jewish nation was driven into exile by the Babylonians & Romans.
