Cleveland Czech Obituaries?

I am researching the family of a DNA match whose Czech immigrant ancestors passed away in Cleveland — an area with which I have no familiarity since all mine came to Chicago.

In Chicago, the “Denni Hlasetel” newspaper was the place where most Czechs posted their family obituaries, most often giving the birthplace of the deceased, which is what I am trying to find for Bedrich Vendr (died 2 Jan 1930) and his wife Marie (Visek) Vendr (died 27 Dec 1951) who both passed away in Cleveland.

Was there a Czech-language newspaper that had such obits for Cleveland? If so, is it on microfilm anywhere or can I request a lookup somewhere for these two obits?
