Lisa Marie to be buried at Graceland, the family's home in Tennessee, next to her father and her late brother, a family representative said. The singer died Thursday after reportedly having a heart attack at home. She was 54 years old.

She was the only child of Elvis Presley, who was known as the "King of Rock 'n' Roll." Benjamin Keough, who was Presley's son, killed himself in August 2020 when he was 27 years old.

Her daughter, the actor Riley Keough, has confirmed that her mother will be laid to rest by her son Benjamin, who passed away in 2020. On Friday, fans left flowers and messages on a stone wall outside Graceland, where they discussed Elvis Presley's only child.

She was one of the last living connections to the legend, whose legacy endures even 45 years after his untimely death. On Thursday, Lisa Marie Presley, who was 54 years old, passed away shortly after being rushed to the hospital.

Even though Lisa Marie spent her formative years in Memphis, she does not currently call that city home.

However, she traveled to the big city to honor both her father's birthday and his shocking death in August of 1977, at the age of 42, when he was discovered in his Graceland mansion. She was in Memphis on the 88th birthday of her late father, last Sunday.

The group visited Graceland on Thursday night, and Angela Ferraro was there. Christmas green and red lights adorned the trees in the front yard. Fans took selfies and dropped flowers at the front gate on a windy night.

Ferraro and her fiance drove the 25 minutes from Olive Branch, Mississippi to be with the family. Ferraro claimed she liked the music of both Elvis Presley and Lisa Marie Presley. They heard "Lights Out" by Lisa Marie Presley on their trip to Graceland.

Elvis died young, and so did she. And her son, his passing was very tragic as well. It’s hard and it’s devastating.

Graceland and other Elvis Presley properties were overseen by the Elvis Presley Trust until Lisa Marie sold most of her holdings in 2005. The mansion, the surrounding 13 acres, and everything in it remained her property. Many members of the Presley family, including her son and her father, are laid to rest there.

According to a report by The Associated Press, Elvis Presley Enterprises confirmed that the mansion is now in a trust for her children's benefit. Riley Keough is one of her three daughters who will benefit from the trust. The representative was unsure about the schedule for funerals and burials.

When Lisa Marie's dad passed away, she was just nine years old. She recalled that he kissed her goodnight in the hours leading up to his death while she was staying at Graceland. When she saw him again the next day, he was on his back in the restroom. She told Rolling Stone in 2003,

I just had a feeling. He wasn’t doing well. All I know is I had it (a feeling), and it happened. I was obsessed with death at a very early age.

In 2012, Lisa Marie attended the inauguration of the "Elvis Through His Daughter's Eyes" exhibit at Graceland. Baby shoes, her first record player, and a tiny white fur coat provided an intimate glimpse into her childhood.

Her birth made headlines all around the world since it occurred exactly nine months after Elvis and Priscilla Presley tied the knot. Speaking fondly of her time with her father, she cracked a smile during an AP interview at that stop.

She listed the key to a golf cart as one of her most treasured possessions since it brought back fond childhood memories of exploring the neighborhood with her dad. And she said,

That was my life. I carried it everywhere. It was never far from me or not on my person when I was a child. I hadn’t seen it in 35 years.

On Thursday, while Kristen Sainato and her husband were in Memphis, she received the tragic news of Lisa Marie's death. They had traveled all the way from Cleveland to attend. She was decked out in a black jacket bearing the iconic "TCB" lightning bolt.

Elvis's mantra was "taking care of business in a flash," which this symbol represented. In her story, she and Lisa Marie first crossed paths at her dad's surprise birthday celebration. Sainato left a floral arrangement outside the Graceland entrance gate, beside the plane that bears Lisa Marie's name.

Conclusion

Lisa Marie Presley died from a heart attack. Now, a representative for her daughter Riley Keough tells ET that she will be buried at Graceland with her late son Ben Keough and her father Elvis Presley.

Lisa Marie sold most of Elvis's estate in 2004, but when she died she was still the only person who owned Graceland and its 13-acre grounds. In 2013, she told ET that her kids would eventually get the house.
