Ivana Trump, the first wife of former President Donald Trump, died on Thursday, July, 14th at the age of 73. Her death was reported to be the result of a fall down the stairs in her Manhattan apartment. Thursday she was laid to rest.
Ivana Trump, the mother of Ivanka, Donald, Jr. and Eric Trump was buried Thursday at her ex-husband, Donald Trump’s, Bedminster Golf Club cemetery. This was after a “Celebration of Life” funeral service at St. Vincent Ferrer Church.
Ivana’s “rose gold casket was lowered into the ground ‘not too far from the main club house’ in a ‘private grassy area’ with ‘a very discreet piece of granite engraved with her name,'” reports the Daily Mail.
All three of Ivana’s children, along with Donald and Melania Trump, their son Barron, Jared Kushner and Ivanka and Jared’s children were in attendance.
Ivanka spoke during the eulogy saying, “Growing up, my mother didn’t tell me a woman could do anything she wanted to — she showed me. She was a trailblazer to men and women alike. My mother once told me there was nothing she couldn’t do in heels. She taught us how to spear fish and then cook what we caught. My mom expanded our minds.”
Eric said of his mother, “She had brains; she had beauty. She was the embodiment of the American dream. She was a force of nature, could beat any man down the slopes, any woman on the runway. She ruled the three of us [kids] with an iron fist but also a heart of gold.”
Ex-husband Donald Trump said Ivana was an “incredible woman” and that she “commanded a room.”
“Trump purchased the golf course in 2007 and wanted to erect a giant mausoleum for his family. When city officials vetoed his plan, Trump tried for a 1,000-plot cemetery and eventually got approved for 10 graves for his immediate family members,” reports the Daily Wire.
What a sad day for the Trump family. It was lovely, however, to see how they all came together in this time of grief. Do you think it was nice that Donald and Melania both attended?
