The Presley's are Branson's first family which makes Bessie our first lady. The chronicles of the Presley family's legacy in Branson is being documented by her son Steve in a book that will be released later this year. This book now holds new meaning as the first 40 years of the Presley's show in Branson represents the final chapter in Bessie Presley's life. Bessie and Lloyd Presley are part of the first generation who helped our town become "the community that could".
We all owe a great deal of gratitude to the Presley's for their endurance, vision and dedication to creating the community Branson is today.
Our hearts go to the family and all of us mourn with them today.
