Millions of people throughout the world were horrified by the news of Lisa Marie Presley’s passing. Everything that would lead to her death happened so quickly.
After her hospitalization became public knowledge, it was announced that she had passed away. The specifics of what occurred at the hospital are now becoming known.
The privilege of being born to arguably one of the most renowned men in history was bestowed upon Lisa Marie Presley. Since her birth, every second of her existence has been meticulously recorded.
But she experienced a difficult early life, with her parents divorcing when she was was a very young girl and losing her father when she was just 9 years old, when he was only forty two on August 16, 1977.
She felt a lot of pressure to uphold her father’s legacy because she was the sole heir to the Presley name. She spent her entire life working alongside her mother to protect her father’s name and estate so that his legacy would endure forever.
She also pursued a musical career, continuing in her father’s footsteps. Thanks to current technology, she was even able to do a “duet” with her father by using old recordings of him. The songs were heard by millions of people and moved Elvis fans all around the world.
Due to Austin Butler’s portrayal of Elvis Presley in the Elvis Presley biopic, Lisa Marie Presley made news once more in 2022. The Presley family had a direct connection to the film and it set records.
Just a few days before her passing Lisa Marie Presley witnessed Austin Butler win the Golden Globe for his role in the film. She gushed about the young actor on the red carpet saying she thought he did a magnificent job in portraying her father and that the movie touched her deeply.
Austin shared her admiration and even acknowledged her in his acceptance speech. He said, “I also want to thank our great producers, Warner Bros., and the Presley family, thank you guys, thank you for opening their homes, memories, and hearts to me. The actor at the gala declared, “Lisa Marie, Priscilla, I love you forever.”
Lisa Marie Presley was discovered unconscious in her bedroom by her housekeeping on the evening of January 12. Her mother, Priscilla Presley, verified that she was taken to the hospital right after and asked that everyone pray for her daughter’s recovery in a statement.
But unfortunately, just hours later Lisa Marie Presley passed away. “It is with a heavy heart that I have to share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” her mother said.
“She was the most passionately strong and loving woman I have ever known,” she added.
According to new details now emerging, when Lisa Marie arrived at the hospital she was declared brain dead and doctors put her in a medically induced coma. The family then had a difficult decision to make.
In order to prevent Lisa Marie from being revived in the event of another cardiac arrest, they decided to sign a do not resuscitate order. She therefore passed away after experiencing her second heart arrest.
The family has now requested privacy at this trying time. According to a statement from their representative, “Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie. They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”
It has now been learned that she will be buried next to her father and other family members in Graceland. A representative for Lisa Marie’s eldest daughter Riley Keough said that Lisa Marie will be buried next to her son Benjamin who died by suicide at 27 years old in 2020.
Lisa Marie’s representative also confirmed that Graceland would now go to her daughters, her oldest daughter Riley, and teenage twins Harper and Finley Lockwood.
A memorial service for her will be held at Graceland at 9 a.m. on Sunday, January 22, 2022. The family has requested people to make donations to The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation instead of getting flowers.
The news of Lisa Marie Presley’s death is honestly so heartbreaking. My heart goes out to the Presley family who has had to deal with so much grief.
