Lisa Marie Presley to be honored with public memorial at Graceland

Lisa Marie Presley will be honored with a public service at her father Elvis Presley’s Graceland home. Lisa Marie died Thursday after being rushed to a Los Angeles hospital for a possible cardiac arrest. She was 54.  Almost a week before her death, Lisa Marie spent time at Graceland celebrating what would have been Elvis’ 88th birthday.

A representative for Presley’s daughter Riley Keough said in a statement: “Riley, Harper, Finley, and Priscilla are grateful for the support, well-wishes, and outpouring of love honoring their beloved Lisa Marie. A public memorial service has been arranged on the front lawn of Graceland at 9:00 am on Sunday, January 22 in Memphis. Please visit [the official Graceland website] for more information.””

Lisa Marie is survived by her mother, Priscilla Presley, 77; and her three daughters, Riley, 33, and twins Finley and Harper Lockwood, 14. Lisa Marie was preceded in death by her son Benjamin Keough, who died by suicide at age 27 in 2020. According to Riley’s representative, Lisa Marie’s final resting place will be at Graceland next to her son Benjamin.  Lisa Marie will join her son at the Meditation Garden, which is also the final resting place of Elvis, Elvis’ mother Gladys Presley, Elvis’ father Vernon Presley and Elvis’ grandmother Minnie Mae Presley.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that all who wish to send something to donate to The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit which offers support to organizations focusing on the arts, education and children’s programs in the Memphis and Whitehaven area.
