Altoona Mirror Newspaper

I am interested in two obituaries from the Altoona Mirror. One is 1920 and the other is 1936. Was the paper in existance at that time? I cant seem to find a straight answer to that question. The obituaries I am looking for dont appear on the newspaper's website as being available. I know there are several reasons this could be.
If these issues are available and anyone has the capability, I am in need of my grandmother's obituary from 1920. I dont know the exact date of her death. Her name was Elizabeth Geesey (McCracken) White, born Nov. 1880, spouse David H. White.
The second obit is of my maiden Aunt Amanda, child of the above, died in 1936 at the age of 31.
Both ladies rest in Logan Valley Cemetery.

Thanks in advance and Happy Thanksgiving to all,
Mary Hillman
