While Lisa Marie was born in Memphis, she never made the city her permanent home. But she went to Memphis for celebrations of her father’s birthday and memorials of his death, which shocked the world when he was found dead in Graceland at age 42 on August 16, 1977.
The L.A. County Coroner told CNN that Presley was checked out by the Medical Examiner on January 14, 2023. The coroner said that the cause of her death won’t be known until toxicology tests are done.
Lisa Marie was the only heir to the Elvis Presley Trust, which managed Graceland and other assets along with Elvis Presley Enterprises until she sold the majority of her shares in 2005. She still owned the mansion, the 13 acres around it, and the things inside it. Her mother, Priscilla Presley, and three children will carry on after her.
In Memphis, Lisa Marie Presley’s loved ones gathered to say goodbye. On Sunday morning at 9 a.m., the public was invited to attend a memorial service for Lisa Marie Presley at Graceland, Elvis Presley’s Memphis home.
