A good news, bad news gravestone

The good news is that the carving at the top of the gravestone is intact, along with the name Rebecca. The bad news is that the bottom half (or more) of the stone, including Rebecca’s surname, is gone.

The carving shows a gravestone next to a willow tree. There appear to be flowers or perhaps a wreath at the base. A woman kneels at the gravestone, her head slightly bowed with her right hand covering her (tearing) eyes. Is that a wreath she is holding in her left hand?

Look closely at the bottom of the stone. Some cut-off lettering shows. Could it be Daughter of? What do you see?

  1. The "Of" was clear to me, but couldn't read the rest. But I had to check out a headline of good news/bad news regarding a headstone!
