“She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”
On the day of Presley’s funeral, her son-in-law, Ben Smith-Peterson, the husband of Presley’s daughter, Riley, shared Riley’s words on her behalf and said, “I hope I can love my daughter the way you loved me, the way you loved my brother and my sisters. Thank you for giving me strength, my heart, my empathy, my courage, my sense of humor, my manners, my temper, my wildness, my tenacity. I’m a product of your heart, my sisters are a product of your heart, my brother is a product of your heart.”
It was also revealed that Lisa Marie Presley become a grandmother months prior to her passing. Riley Keough, her daughter, gave birth in 2022 and she confirmed the news with People magazine.
