I would be very grateful for a translation of this headstone. It is for Rose ZABLE/YABLONSKY 9 Sep 1846-18 Jun 1908

11/14/2021 1:41 PM Most of the text on this stone consists of lines of praise. If the deceased is a family member who is important to you, I will try to translate it as best as I can, but many of the letters are worn.

Here are the relevant details:

Her name seems to be given as Chayah ______. Unfortunately, most of the name is in the dark streaked area going down the center and I cannot make out the letters. If you tell me her full secular name, I might be able to make something out (although there is often no obvious connection between Jewish and secular names).

Her father's name was Yisrael.

The Hebrew date of death was the 19th of Sivan, 5668.

My guess would be Chaya Reyzil daughter of Mr Israel
חי רייזיל בת ר ישראל
Judging by the remnants of some letters

Here lies
The woman who was righteous and G-d-fearing
[illegible] kindness and mercy and charity
who was totally devoted
to save those in difficulties and who were unfortunate
.... daughter of Reb Yisrael
Passed away on the 19 of the month of Sivan
.... here. May her memory
be for blessing...
