The funeral of Ivana Trump, the late ex-wife of former President Donald Trump, will be held at a Catholic church in New York City, according to various media reports.
Trump was found dead at age 73 on July 14, after falling down the stairs of her Manhattan home. New York City's chief medical examiner ruled her death an accident. She had been suffering from hip pain before her death, the New York Post reported.
Trump’s memorial service will take place on Wednesday in Manhattan’s historic St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church, located near her home on the Upper East Side. The parish office confirmed with CNA that Trump was Catholic, although would not comment on whether she was a regular Mass-goer.
The Czech-American socialite and businesswoman did not reveal much about her faith life to the public. A 2017 profile from The New Yorker said, “Ivana was born in 1949 in what was then Czechoslovakia, to Catholic parents who refused to join the Communist Party.”
