Lisa Marie Presley laid to rest at Graceland

Lisa Marie Presley laid to restLisa Marie Presley’s family, friends, and fans gathered at Graceland on Sunday to honor the late singer-songwriter and only child of Elvis and Priscilla Presley.

Musicians Billy Corgan, Alanis Morissette, and Axl Rose, as well as Priscilla Presley, attended the public memorial service at Elvis Presley’s mansion in Memphis, Tenn.

The ceremony was live-streamed on Vimeo. Lisa Marie Presley died earlier this month after going into cardiac arrest at her Calabasas home. She was 54 years old.

Her mother, Priscilla gave a eulogy reading a poem by one of Lisa Marie Presley’s daughters.

“‘I have no idea how to put my mother into words. Truth is there are too many,’” Priscilla Presley read on behalf of her granddaughter. “‘Lisa Marie Presley was an icon, a role model, a superhero to many people all over the world. But Mama was my icon, my role model, my superhero in much more ways than one. …

“She knew it was close to the end. Survivor’s guilt, some would say. But a broken heart was the doing of her death. Now she is home where she always belonged, but my heart is missing her love. She knew that I loved her. I fear I’ll never touch her, but the old soul is always with me. She doesn’t drift above.’ That says it all, and thank you all for being here. … Our heart is broken, Lisa. We all love you.”

She is survived by her mother, Pricilla Presley, and her three daughters, Riley Keough, 33, Harper Lockwood, 14, and Finley Lockwood, 14. Benjamin Keough, her son, died in July 2020 at the age of 27.

May her soul rest in peace.
