Her price was
far above that
of Rubies.

I though this epitaph was interesting.  When I first read it I will admit my first thought was who is Ruby and way would you put that on another woman's stone. But after a google search I found that it is from the bible.

"Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies."
From the King James Bible - Proverbs 31:10
