Ivana Trump, the first wife of former President Trump, will be laid to rest in a funeral mass in New York City Wednesday.

The service is closed to the public.

Ivana Trump died at the age of 73. She was found at her New York City apartment unconscious and near the bottom of a staircase. A medical examiner determined the death to have been accidental.

“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!” former President Trump said Thursday in a Truth Social post.

The two met in New York City and married in 1977, becoming an iconic power couple of the 1980s and a fixture in New York City. Ivana helped manage Trump real estate projects and even designed the interior of Trump Tower.
