Last week, the only daughter of the iconic Elvis Presley, Lisa Marie Presley, died suddenly. She was rushed to the hospital after going into cardiac arrest and passed away at the age of 54. Her mother and Elvis’ ex-wife Priscilla Presley released a statement and asked for privacy at this time.
When the news broke of her death, many friends, family, and fans paid tribute to Lisa Marie, who was seen just days earlier at the Golden Globe Awards. Some of Elvis’ ex-girlfriends remembered Lisa Marie, who spent time with her when she was young.

Elvis’ former fiancée, Ginger Alden wrote, “It’s not always easy knowing all/what to say in moments sometimes but here goes. As many of us share with extreme saddened hearts today the passing of Elvis’s daughter, I wanted to reflect. My time with Lisa Marie was unique for me and special. I grew to care deeply for her and felt the same from her. We didn’t have years together but it was quality time spent for sure when she visited Elvis and me at Graceland as a young child in 77 and was able to join us on some tours and visit with me at my family home.”
She continued, “I will always remember riding in the golf cart with Lisa at her father’s home, something she loved so very much and taking her to good “ole” Mcdonalds for a burger. We went to Libertyland, rode rides, something we all loved to do. I understood her feelings and appreciated notes she wrote to me.”
In addition, Linda Thompson, who dated Elvis from 1972 until 1976, honored Lisa Marie. She shared, “I was so happy to see her at Graceland to celebrate what would have been Elvis’s 88th birthday, and then, of course, at the Golden Globes. Lisa and I kept in touch off and on for all these years…Lisa Marie was so much like her daddy it was uncanny…She had his deep, soulful eyes, his pouty lip, and his raucous, irreverent sense of humor…I believe she lived her life authentically.”
Lisa Marie will be buried next to her son, Benjamin Keough at Graceland. Elvis and other members of the Presley family are also buried at his former residence turned museum.
