Nancy S. Shaffer, wife of John Shaffer and widow of the late Z. Drake, died August 29, 1860, aged 47 years [1m 20d]

Note: the bracketed info comes from "Cemeteries of Bloom Twp., Fairfield Co., OH", Fairfield County Gen. Soc., Chapter OGS, 1996, p 34. It's important to note, though, that the book also shows her age at death as 77 years rather than 47. I think the stone clearly shows 47, and it makes much more sense as well since she'd be of the same age as her husbands.
