hi Jeremy,

It's my observation that the obituary records typically mention a woman's 
parents only if she died having never married.  Once a woman married, her 
identity changed from being tied to her father/parents to being tied to her 

I scanned the record for your ancestor, and after her age the rest of it 
looks to me like it is about her testament, masses, etc.  I didn't see any 
mention of her birthplace, but I think it mentions one of her sons by name.

hope that helps,
