"Consort of" on headstones in Pennsylvania

I have been searching various cemeteries in central PA and occassionally come across headstones that will read "Consort of" suchas as: Rebecca consort of John....

What does that mean? Would she be an unmarried woman who lived with the man mentioned on the tombstone and held the status of girlfreind or lover or does it mean something else entirely?

I now ask because I've found it on a headstone of an ancestor.
