About Elizabeth Breitenfeld


Gravestone inscription:

In a [hoarse?] voice I scream and call bitterly Why have you left me [???] wife of my bosom? Oh soul mate – the happiness of my heart [???] From on high you put [???] dear and clear To the fields of rest [???] to the land of resurrection She has most certainly gone and I weep for that

How shall I forget you, mistress of the house – woman of valor*? [???] Your deeds [???] [???] were felt day and night To support [???] souls [???] Your memory will never leave me forever.

  • ”Woman of Valor” is the name of a prayer extoling the virtues of a wife and considered the ultimate compliment. A religious man would read this prayer to his wife in the presence of their children every Friday night. It is also traditionally read graveside at a woman’s burial.
