Shlomo
Died 16 Adar

Left side:
Shm...
Died 13 Nissan

Bottom center:
May their souls be bound in the bond of everlasting life
12/3/2020 6:22 AM Another possible name for the woman could be Naomi - the visible first three letters being נעמ.
12/3/2020 8:36 AM Naomi on the left looks correct, but it probably is "Shm....," which would indicate Shmuel (Samuel) as the only common name beginning with those two letters.
It was not common in those days (considering how old the stone looks) for husband and wife to be buried together.
