After suddenly passing on Jan 12, 2023, Lisa Marie Presley’s funeral was held at the start of 9 AM on Jan 22, 2023, with many of Lisa Marie’s friends, family, and loved ones arriving at Graceland’s front lawn to honor the life of the songstress.
Born Feb 1, 1968, Lisa Marie was a resilient and accomplished singer/ songwriter, humanitarian, and mother of four. Also known as Elvis and Priscilla Presley’s only daughter, Lisa Marie inherited the entirety of her father’s estate on her 25th birthday, making her the sole heiress of the King of Rock’s estate.
Throughout her musical career, she released three albums named To Whom It May Concern, Now What, and Storm & Grace, along with non-album singles (most notably when she would rework her father’s songs so she could duet in them like “Where No One Stands Alone!”)
Lisa Marie welcomed two children with musician and ex-husband Danny Keough: a daughter named Riley and a son named Benjamin, who sadly died by suicide in 2020. She also welcomed twin daughters named Harper Vivienne Ann and Finley Aaron Love, with her ex-husband Michael Lockwood.
Tragically, Lisa Marie died at the young age of 54 after suffering a cardiac arrest. She is buried next to her is her late, beloved son Benjamin and across from her lies her late father Elvis, in the Graceland Meditation Garden.
Our thoughts and hearts are will the Presley family, and her friends, as they navigate this day. Along with her friends and family, many fans are taking this day to honor the late star.
