NEW YORK ( Associated Press) — Ivana Trump, the 1980s style icon and businesswoman who helped Donald Trump build the empire that kept him on a street leading to the White House, lived a “beautiful life,” says former president recalled that loved ones paid their last respects to him on Wednesday.

All his children, other relatives and a group of friends joined a Manhattan church for the funeral of former President Ivana Trump.

“A very sad day, but at the same time a celebration of a wonderful and beautiful life,” he wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social, before that, former First Lady Melania Trump and her son Barron headed to St. Vincent Ferrer Roman The Catholic Church is located just a few blocks from Ivana Trump’s home near Central Park.

Ivana and Donald Trump’s three children – Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric – stood by their fathers and their families as a gold-colored coffin was brought from the church. Eric Trump held a hand around his sister’s shoulders as he held the hand of one of his young children, who held a red flower.

Tiffany Trump, daughter of the former president and his second wife, Marla Maples, also attended the service, as did family friends including Fox News co-host Jeanine Pirro, “The Five,” and Charles Kushner, a real estate developer. And the father of Ivanka Trump’s husband Jared Kushner. Fashion designer Denise Basso, a longtime friend of Ivana Trump, was also among those mourning.

Maas was “a beautiful, wonderful send-off to Ivana Trump,” said another longtime friend, R. Corey Hay, as he emerged.

Trump’s family announced on Thursday that the 73-year-old had died at their home. Officials said the death was an accident, with bruises on his torso as the cause.

Ivana and Donald Trump met in the 1970s and were married from 1977 to 1992. In the 1980s, they were a power couple, and she was well known in her own right, instantly recognizable with her blond hair and her glamorous look in an updo.

Ivana Trump also attended her husband’s businesses, managed one of his Atlantic City casinos and chose some of the design elements in New York City’s Trump Tower.

Their very public divorce was ugly, but in recent years, they were friendly. Ivana Trump was an ardent supporter of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and said he spoke regularly.
