NEW YORK — Ivana Trump, the 1980s style icon and businesswoman who

helped Donald Trump build the empire that put him on a road toward the

White House, lived a “beautiful life,” the former president recalled as loved

ones paid final respects to her Wednesday.

The ex-president joined all his children, an array of other relatives and friends

at a Manhattan church for Ivana Trump’s funeral Mass.

“A very sad day, but at the same time a celebration of a wonderful and beautiful life,”
