It has been announced that Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of the late Elvis Presley, will be laid to rest at Graceland, the Memphis, Tennessee mansion made famous by her father. The news of her burial at the iconic estate was confirmed by a representative for Presley’s estate.
Graceland, which was purchased by Elvis Presley in 1957, has long been a pilgrimage site for fans of the legendary musician, and now serves as a museum and tourist attraction. The estate includes the main residence, a meditation garden where Elvis and other family members are buried, and a number of outbuildings.
The decision to bury Lisa Marie at Graceland is seen as a fitting tribute to her father, who was widely regarded as one of the most influential figures in music history. The two were very close, and Lisa Marie has spoken openly about her love and admiration for her father in the past.
“Lisa Marie was the light of Elvis’ life, and it is only fitting that she be laid to rest at the place that was so special to him,” said Kevin Kern, a spokesperson for the estate. “We know that she will be in good company among the other members of the Presley family who are buried here.”
The news of Lisa Marie’s burial at Graceland comes after her death at the age of 52. The cause of death has not been announced but her death was confirmed by her publicist. The news has been met with an outpouring of grief and condolences from fans, friends, and colleagues.
Lisa Marie’s burial at Graceland is expected to take place in the coming days, and will be a private ceremony for family and close friends. The estate will be closed for the day for the burial, but will reopen to the public the following day. Graceland officials have not announced any plans for a public memorial service.
The burial of Lisa Marie Presley at Graceland will be a poignant reminder of the enduring legacy of Elvis Presley and his family, and a fitting final resting place for the daughter of the King of Rock and Roll.
