Niemi is a name, perhaps on the place where the woman was living.
Kyrkofattig, "Church poor", poor individual getting her living from the welfare from the Church.
E:a, abbreviation for "enka" (today written änka), widow.
Ålderdom, old age (perhaps a statement for the reason to her situation).

Ålderdom= old age, should be the cause of death stated. And she was 75 years 2 months and six days old when she died.

10.9.1837 = the date of death. She died 10 september 1837
17.9.1837 = date of burial. She was buried 17 september 1837
