Looking for a match or similar font to the text on these signs. Particularly the "D" on the middle sign and "R" on the right most sign -- how they're fatter on the bottom of the curve. Any ideas appreciated.

I doubt that it has a name. Those signs were most likely hand-painted.

I can only see similarities between the letter forms - not uniformity. Take the M in "Morte" vs "Miscarriage". Nonetheless it looks like a compressed Copperplate to me.
