Here lies an important woman
-I cannot make out last word second line-
I can make out the name ROSA and on same line at the end looks like the name HADAD and perhaps she was the daughter of a Rabbi הרר ???? KATZ [ a Cohen]

She died in Nisan

Best I can do

11/26/2020 4:57 PM Roiza daughter of Rabbi Shneir Katz died 18 Nissan 55(90?)
11/27/2020 6:18 AM Here is deposited an
important woman, Ms.
Reiza daughter of rabbi (may just be an honorific, but usually "the rabbi" means just that as opposed to other formulations)
Shneyur KATZ
PERHAPS the remainder says
he died 18 days
in the month of Nisan
in the year 5586,
but the letters get harder to read toward the right & toward the bottom of the photo
11/29/2020 4:35 PM I agree that the date of death is the 18th of Nisan (and, thus, during the holiday of Passover), but the year is truly challenging.

If the year is 5686, this would make it 1926. However, it looks like it might be in the 5690's, which would make the secular decade the 1930's.
