Ivana Trump, (1949-2022). Rest in Peace.

 

Ivana Trump passed away Thursday at the age of 73.  She was born on February 20, 1949.  She is survived by her three children: Donald Jr., who was born on December 31, 1977, Ivana Marie “Ivanka”, who was born on October 30, 1981 and Eric who was born on January 6, 1984, and a number of grandchildren.  She led a very full and vibrant life.

President Donald Trump wrote a generous and gracious statement saying, “I am very saddened to inform all of those that loved her, of which there are many, that Ivana Trump has passed away at her home in New York City. She was a wonderful, beautiful and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life. Her pride and joy were her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. She was so proud of them, as we were all so proud of her. Rest in peace, Ivana!”

Rest in Peace.  Prayers for her family.  May they find comfort in this sad time in their lives.

    Wikipedia had a lovely picture of Ivana which I was unable to cut and paste.  Perhaps someone else can do so.

    [Edit.]  See comment #7.  Thank you Mark Alexander.  A lovely picture.

    A correct, generous, and gracious note from President Trump, and from you, Gary. A death in the family, even of a former spouse, is reason to put politics to the side.

    During and after her divorce, the media was cruel to Ivana Trump, as they are almost invariably cruel to real people; at the time, her husband had no political connotation. She was rich, her name was in boldface, and that was enough reason for the paparazzi and the scandal sheets to mock them. 

    73 years old. That once sounded old to me (laughs ruefully). Not much older than you or me. A reminder that everyone’s story, whether in the tabloids or in anonymity, comes to an end.

    Does anyone know what she passed away from? That is sad news for the whole family.  Very sorry to hear it. I hope the media is kind and respectful to them.

    Possible heart attack is what I read.

    Pretty sure you referred to the children she raised as “Uday and Qusay” but sure, we’ll pretend you’re praying for them.

    I think that I did, but that was a different day.  Today, we honor the good in her.  When her former husband passes, I hope that I will also honor the good in him. 

    Rest in Peace.  Prayers for her family.  May they find comfort in this sad time in their lives.

    Ivana Trump was only 73 when she passed.  This should be a reminder that every day is a gift and should be lived to the fullest.

    That is so great.  It shows both of them at their best.  It appears that this came out in the 1990’s while there were reports of marital discord, which makes it all the more remarkable. 

    Trump can be such a charming rogue, and I mean that in the “a mischievous person : scamp” manner!  This is not the time or place for me to say anything negative about anybody.  Trump is simply funny some times, and Ivana played off of him.
