• MACKENSEN ELSIE F. Age 92, pea...

Age 92, peacefully surrounded
by her loving family, on March
21, 2019; loving wife of almost
56 years to Paul J. Mackensen,
Jr.; cherished mother of Dale
Lutz; grandmother of
Christopher (Casey) Lutz and
Cindy (Jamz) Porzio; great-
grandmother of Victoria "Tori"
Lutz, Adrianna "Anna" and
James Porzio. Elsie is also
survived by many loving
nieces, nephews and cousins.
Elsie spent several years early
on working in retail, simply
because of her passion for
fashion and beautiful clothes.
The majority of her career
however, was spent in the
travel industry, where she
inevitably met the love of her
life and her best friend, P.J.
Mackensen, Jr. The two of
them found happiness
traveling all over the world. All
who knew and loved her can
agree Elsie was a gracious
hostess, always entertaining
friends and family. Because of
Elsie's sewing capabilities, she
learned to dress impeccably,
create her own designs and
can also be remembered for
telling other women, including
her granddaughter, "You dress
for you." Elsie will be deeply
missed by all who knew and
loved her. Arrangements by
BEINHAUER . Family and
friends are welcome Monday
at 11 a.m. for a Memorial
Service at 2630 W. Liberty
Ave., Dormont 412-531-4000.
