Lisa Marie Presley, the only daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, died Thursday (January 12) at the age of 54.

TMZ was the first to report that paramedics were called to Presley’s Calabasas, California, home after she was found unresponsive due to “full cardiac arrest.” Lisa Marie’s ex-husband, Danny Keough, performed CPR until paramedics arrived. She was transported to the hospital where she later died.

Priscilla Presley confirmed her daughter’s death in a statement that read:

“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,” Priscilla Presley wrote. “We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment.”

Lisa Marie Presley was 4-years-old when her parents divorced, and nine when her famous father died.

She devoted her life to philanthropic endeavors and furthering her father’s legacy. Upon the death of her dad and her paternal grandparents, Lisa Marie became the sole heir to Elvis’s estate. She used her platform for good, serving as chairperson of the Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation. Lisa Marie, with the help of the team at Elvis Presley Enterprises, founded charities that included Presley Place, Elvis Presley Music Room, and the Elvis Presley Endowed Scholarship Fund at the College of Communication & Fine Arts at the University of Memphis.

Just two days ago, Lisa Marie attended the Golden Globe Awards with her mother to support the cast and crew of the film Elvis. In what would be her final public appearance, Presley praised the movie and specifically Austin Butler who portrayed her father in the movie.
