Lisa Marie Presley suffered a cardiac arrest at her Calabasas home, and died at a hospital in Los Angeles on January 12. She was age 54.
Priscilla Presley led her family in tributes to her late daughter at an emotional memorial service Sunday morning.
She shared a poem by one of Lisa Marie Presley’s 14-year-old daughters, in which she called her mother ‘an icon, a role model and a superhero.’
