Others will be better able to assist you...however, this is what I could make out.

Blessed

???

on completing the Russian Church school

in the city of Los Angelos

Los Angelos 12/25 July 1965 yr.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

What pani Liza said above, plus:

маргаритб куимоьой - this may be the name of the person to whom the Bible belonged (it's a bit hard to recognize because of a difficult handwriting, but one possibility is, Маргариты Климовой, "Margarity Klimovoj" - which is Маргарита Климова, "Margarita Klimova" in the genetive case).

Btw, are you sure it's Russian, and not Slavonic?
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

"окончившей рускую церковную школу при" is definitely modern vernacular Russian.
