English translation:...of my late Eba.
Explanation:
I suppose that it is a nickname. I've never heard of a noun "eba".

\"Rahmetli\" znaci \"pokojni\"; a sto se tice termina \"ebe\" mislim da se radi ili o nadimku ili o turcizmu koji nisam nikad cuo na bosanskom. Mislim da bi trebao upitati na paru \"Turkish-English\" za termin \"rahmetli ebe\"

I FOUND IT:
EBE in Turkish means MIDWIFE


-------> \"....of my late midwife\"
