Headstone wording

Postby Yisroelp » Mon May 09, 2011 10:45 am

I am in the process of drafting the wording to go on my late mother-in-law's headstone. It should to an extent mirror that on my wife's late father's headstone. He died before any of his children got married and so has the words "Ba'ali veAvinu HaYakar". My late mother-in-law was a grandmother and a great grandmother, so I would like in Hebrew the words for "Our dear mother, grandmother and great grandmother". Does anyone have experience as to how this should be worded? Should it be, for example, "Imeinu, veSavta veSavta Rabbah HaYekara"? Or perhaps "Imeinu, veSavta veSavta Rabbah shelanu HaYekara"?

I see this kind of phrasing on the notices around town - I'll let you know soon

The one I saw today said "Imeinu, Savateinu HaYekara ve'haAhuva". I'm trying to recall what people say for great-grandmothers.

You can also do: "Ima, Savta, Savta-Rabba, Yekara veAhuva"
