1885 Headstone help?

Can anyone help me decipher portions of my gggrandmother’s headstone? I’m working on my family genealogy and am stymied - this lady is my brick wall. I am having a heck of a time trying to figure out what the 3rd, 4th and 5th lines say - and there also appears to be something illegible written at the very bottom, as well. She was a German immigrant so it could possibly be written in German. I am hoping that perhaps a birth month is given as I have found a couple German birth records in my ancestral research that could be hers - same name, same year of 1837, but completely different months. Unfortunately her death certificate does not list any further information. I have two headstone photos to work from. I have added what I KNOW it says - I would be forever grateful for any helpful input you may have in filling in the rest!

Line 1 (Top of Stone): Christina
Line 2: Wife of
Line 3: J. G. Schuster
Line 4: Born Fauser (or is it Tauser? - can’t tell but hopefully one is a maiden name) 
Line 5:  
Line 6:
Line 7: Died Oct. 25, 1885
Line 8: Aged 48 Years 
Line 9
