Ivana Trump died after suffering “blunt impact injuries” to her upper body when she fell down stairs at her home in New York City.
The death of former US President Donald Trump’s first wife, 73, has been ruled an accident by New York’s Medical Examiner’s Office.
US media reported that Ivana was found at the foot of the stairs in her apartment next to a spilled cup of coffee.
On Thursday, the Trump family paid tribute to the matriarch as a “wonderful, beautiful and amazing woman who lived a great and inspiring life.”
Her daughter Ivanka Trump said she was “heartbroken” and would “miss her forever.”
“Mom was brilliant, charming, passionate and hilariously funny. She lived life to the fullest — never turning down an opportunity to laugh or dance,” the former presidential aide wrote on Twitter.
“I will miss her forever and will always keep her memory alive in our hearts.”
Mr Trump, who has been banned from Twitter indefinitely, announced the death on his social media platform Truth Social.
