Mourning for Lisa Marie Presley
Lisa Marie Presley passed away unexpectedly on January 12th. She was found dead in her home after suffering cardiac arrest. She was briefly resuscitated but died after being rushed to the hospital.
The love story of Lisa Marie Presley’s parents made headlines around the world: Priscilla’s stepfather was stationed in Germany, where the fateful first encounter of the then 14-year-old with the “Love Me Tender” star took place in 1959. Priscilla had to come of age and finish school before they were married in Las Vegas in May 1967. Nine months later, daughter Lisa Marie was born. The turbulent marriage lasted six years. After the divorce in 1973, neither of them remarried.
Lisa Marie Presley was nine years old when her famous father died in 1977 at the age of 42. She has pursued a singing career herself and has released three studio albums, most recently Storm & Grace in 2012.
But Presley made more headlines with her private life. She was divorced four times and had four children: 14-year-old twin daughters from her fourth marriage to Michael Lockwood and daughter Riley from her first marriage to the musician Danny Keough. Son Benjamin Keough took his own life in 2020 at the age of 27 and is also buried in Graceland.
