The Persley family is mourning the death of Lisa Marie Presley, the only daughter of Elvis Presley. The past two years have been tough for them as they have seen many losses. Now the only child of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll singer suddenly passed on Thursday. She was 54 years and suffered a cardiac arrest. She also took the mantle of her father’s legacy and became a singer herself.
Presley released her albums in the 2000s and did some live performance shows. In an interview, she revealed how influential her father has been in her entire life. Mr. Persley died in August 1977 at the age of 42; his daughter was nine at the time. The singer had a difficult life and has been through many things.

The singer was hospitalized after collapsing in her house in Calabasas, California. She was rushed to the hospital after having a medical emergency at her home. Her housekeeper found her unresponsive in her bedroom, while Presley’s ex-husband, Danny Keough performed CPR. The paramedics arrived and shot her with epinephrine to regain a pulse. They were successful and transferred her to the hospital, but she had to be put on life support. After suffering from cardiac arrest, the songwriter was pulled out of life support after her death.
