Grandma's obit just came

To the untrained eye, I do not see a heck of a lot of information, but here it is, with some question underneath.

Virginia Bryant
Mrs. Virginia Bryant, colored, aged 32 years, of Smithdale, died Wednesday in the Mercy Hospital Pittsburg, following a lingering illness. She is survived my one son William Bryant. The body has been removed to the funeral parlors of Frances A Keith, 1323 Locust street. Funeral services will be held there on Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. Internment will be in Richland Cemetery.

Now, should I make anything out of the fact that my dad's name does not have "Jr." behind it.

The cemetery has changed its name, and is now Versailles and I know her location.

No one knows what happened to the records of the Keith funeral home. Is their a depository for these sort of things?
