Melania Trump’s Mother, Amalija Knavs, Passes Away at 78: A Journey of Strength and Resilience

SEVNICA, Slovenia – Amalija Knavs, the mother of former First Lady Melania Trump, passed away at the age of 78 today. The news of her death was confirmed by sources close to the family. Knavs had been living in Slovenia, her home country, after her daughter became the First Lady in 2017.

Knavs was born on April 9, 1945, in the small town of Novo Mesto in Slovenia. She raised Melania, her only daughter, and her son, Denis, with her husband Viktor Knavs. Throughout Melania’s time in the spotlight, Knavs mostly remained out of public view, focusing on her privacy and family life.

Amalija Knavs’ passing will undoubtedly be a difficult time for the Trump family, who have recently been under scrutiny due to the end of Donald Trump’s presidency and the events that unfolded at the Capitol on January 6th. However, it is unclear if Melania will attend the funeral due to travel restrictions and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The Slovenian-born Knavs became a U.S. citizen alongside her husband in 2006. She was often seen by Melania’s side during public appearances, both in the United States and during official visits to other countries. Her presence was a constant support for Melania as she navigated her role as First Lady.

While Melania Trump and her family have not yet released any public statements on the passing of Amalija Knavs, it is expected that they will request privacy during this difficult time. The loss of a loved one is always a significant event, and it is no different for a high-profile family like the Trumps.

Amalija Knavs leaves behind a lasting legacy as a dedicated mother and a supportive figure in Melania Trump’s life. Her memory will continue to be cherished by her family and friends.
