12/23/2017 7:47 PM These are quite long, but I will summarize:

1. Aron FRIEDBERG
Aharon, son of the deceased Moshe FRIEDBERG, who died 29th Tevet 5551.

The lines in smaller text add some more: both father and son were Torah scholars, and the father's name was Moshe Peretz. Aharon did kind deeds for the living and the dead (presumably was part of the Chevra Kadisha, burial society). He rose for prayers early every day, and died Tuesday 28th of Tevet.

2. Mrs. Necha, wife of Aron FRIEDBERG
Here lies, the important woman, Mrs. Rechla, wife of the deceased G-d fearing rabbi, Aharon FRIEDBERG, who died evening of 7th Adar II, 5594.

Below, some extra words, that she worked with righteousness (i.e. was charitable) her whole life.

3. Peschen (née WARENDORF) GANS
The G-d-fearing, woman of valor, intelligent, the leader. Mrs. Leah Pis, of blessed memory, wife of the deceased leader, president and supporter of the community, Ayzik GANS, (more words of praise...), died Shabbat eve, 7th Kislev, but buried on Sunday, 5582.

Additional words, Mrs. Pescha daughter of the leader Rabbi Hertz WARENDORF of Celle(?), wife of the famous and great Rabbi Ayzik GANS. She was educated and spoke words of wisdom, and was G-d fearing.

Hope this helps.
Best,
