(curved) PN and old modest woman

(curved) Mrs. Risa [or Risia] bat Neta of blessed memory

16 Iyyar 5690

[Next eight lines are rhyming couplets]

Esteemed woman of valour

Dear and important to her husband

Worked all her days

Was seen [unclear] in the end of her years

Left an inheritance from her wealth

also for matters of holiness

donated shelter for the elderly

Her soul shall be for eternal memory

may her soul be bound in life
