10/31/2018 8:07 PM a young woman, unmarried
Tzivia daughter of Yakov
died 27th of ???? 5627
May her soul be bound up in the bond of everlasting life (acronym)
11/1/2018 12:56 AM I read the year as 5697.
11/1/2018 9:41 AM Allowing for the length of the letter Resh and looking at the letter Noon in the ensuing abbreviation, I vote for the year being 5657

The unmarried Tsevia daughter of
Mr Jakob died 27
Iyar year 5657 (then the abbreviation) May her soul be bound in the bonds of everlasting life
11/1/2018 9:44 AM The year could also possibly be 5640 (תר"מ).

As for the month, as a suggestion I would say it's Iyar.
