Lisa Marie Presley to be Buried Next to Son at Graceland, Where Her Father, Elvis Presley, Called Home
There is new details emerging about Lisa Marie Presley’s dying hours. The 54-year-old mother of four reportedly had a second cardiac arrest in the hospital, despite initial reports that her heartbeat had been restored after she collapsed in her California home.
Reports from Page Six state that upon arriving at the hospital, Presley’s family allegedly signed a “Do Not Resuscitate” order. Presley was placed in a medically induced coma after being pronounced brain dead. With his second heart arrest, Presley was officially declared dead.
Housekeeper Lisa Marie Presley and her first ex-husband, Daniel Keough, who was still living with Presley at the time, discovered the singer and administered CPR until emergency personnel arrived.
Lisa Marie Presley, who died of cardiac arrest on January 12th, will be laid to rest in Elvis Presley’s Graceland mansion. After Lisa Marie’s father, who was only 42 years old when he died of a heart attack in 1977, Lisa Marie inherited the mansion in Memphis, Tennessee.
After her death, she will be laid to rest in Graceland with Elvis and other members of the Presley family, including her son Benjamin Keough, who committed suicide on July 12, 2020. For over 40 years, the house has served as a museum, and now it sees over 650 thousand tourists a year.
Lisa Marie Presley has been open about her grief at the death of her son. “My beautiful beautiful angel, I worshipped the ground you walked on, on this earth and now in Heaven. My heart and soul went with you,” she wrote in one Instagram tribute following his suicide. He was her only son.
Lisa Marie Presley was having trouble breathing while staying at the home of her ex-husband, Danny Keough. Not long after, she went into cardiac arrest and had to be rushed to the hospital where she was treated by Keough. Later, with her mother by her side, she died in the hospital.
“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us. She was the most passionate strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers,” said Priscilla Presley.
When she passed away, Lisa Marie was 54 years old. She leaves behind her mother, Priscilla Presley, and three daughters from her marriages to ex-husbands Danny Keough and Michael Lockwood: Riley Keough and the fraternal twins Harper Vivienne Ann Lockwood and Finley Aaron Love Lockwood.
Lisa Marie was also married to Keough and Lockwood, as well as Michael Jackson (1994–1996) and Nicolas Cage (2002–2004). She has an upcoming wedding to her fiance John Oszajca. After her divorce from Lockwood was formalized in 2021, she was grieving alone when she passed away the following year.

Her mom Priscilla and her three daughters, Riley, Finley, and Harper, are in my prayers,” wrote Leah Remini on Twitter on January 12th.
On January 10th, Lisa Marie was spotted at the Golden Globes, interrupting an interview with Austin Butler, who played Elvis Presley in the most recent biopic. The photo the two took together, two days before she died away, appears to put everything into perspective.
“Tom and I had spent some time with the family during the Elvis movie promotional tour. Lisa Marie was so honest and direct, vulnerable, and in a state of anticipation about the movie. She spoke so eloquently about her father, what the movie meant to her, that it was a celebration of her dad,” wrote Rita Wilson on Instagram.
