On Friday, a representative for the singer confirmed that her ultimate resting place would be “in Graceland, close to her beloved son Ben.” Presley passed away on Thursday at the age of 54 following a heart arrest at her Calabasas, California, home.
After performing CPR, giving epinephrine, and reviving her pulse, paramedics reportedly took her to a nearby hospital in Los Angeles, where she eventually passed away.
In a statement released on Thursday, Priscilla Presley said that her daughter Lisa Marie had passed away. She added, “It is with a heavy heart that I must convey the tragic news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us.
She was the most fervent, powerful, and loving lady I had ever met. The only child of Priscilla Presley and Elvis Presley, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, was Lisa Marie.
The vocalist of “Lights Out” later became a mother herself, raising a total of four kids. She welcomed twins Finley and Harper, ages 14 and Riley, 33, and Benjamin, with her first ex-husband Danny Keough, as well as Riley and Benjamin with her most recent ex-husband, Michael Lockwood.
Sadly, Benjamin took his own life in July 2020 at the age of 27. Lisa Marie, who had been devastated by the loss, referred to her son in an October 2020 memorial as “My lovely, beautiful angel.” On this planet as well as in Heaven, I revered the ground you trod on. My entire being left with you.
“Depth of the sorrow without you is endless and suffocating every second of every day. I won’t ever be the same.
“Please wait for me my love, and hold my hand as I stay to continue to look out for and raise your little sisters as well as to be there for Riley,” the “Storm & Grace” singer said in closing. You would desire it, I know that.
Lisa Marie will now join Benjamin in the cemetery where his grandfather Benjamin was laid to rest. There, in the Meditation Garden, several other members of Elvis’ family were also buried, including his grandmother Minnie Mae Presley and parents Gladys and Vernon Presley.
Lisa Marie was the only heir of Graceland at the time of her death, and her living children will now take over ownership of the property.
