Ivana also had two sons — Donald Trump Jr., 45, and Eric Trump, 39 — with her second ex-husband, former President Donald Trump.
The former first daughter includes a black-and-white photo of her mother and grandmother Mari Zelnikova, who is 97 and still divides her time between her grandchildren.
Ivanka’s brothers were left out of the photo, but Don Jr. posted the full photo on Instagram on Friday, writing, ‘We miss you mom.’
The last photo he shared was a black and white photo of his mother smiling in a field that appears to have been taken in the 1970s.
The post, with a message from designer Dennis Basso, received more than 20,000 likes and hundreds of comments within an hour.
‘Missing my good friend,’ Basso wrote of the late socialite, who was a close friend and regular at her fashion shows.
Ivana was found dead at the age of 73 in her New York townhouse on July 14, 2022, after suffering blunt force trauma from falling down the stairs.

As Ivanka continues to grieve, she is turning to her husband, Jared Kushner, and their three children, Arabella, Joseph and Theodore, on the anniversary of her mother’s death, People reports.
“Ivanka is spending precious time with her husband and her children, doing what she loves most, being a mom,” a source told the outlet. ‘He felt there was no better way to honor his late mother than by raising and loving his own children.’
Ivanka and her brothers were born and raised in New York City, but have lived in Miami, Florida since her father left the White House in 2021.
The Trumps often spend their summers together in Bedminster, New Jersey, where Ivana is buried at the Trump National Golf Club.
In October, Ivanka and Don Jr. traveled to the Czech Republic to receive an award from their late mother, who was honored by then-President Milos Zeman for her ‘dedication to the cultural and social life’ of the country.
Ivanka officially quit politics next month and has spent much of the year traveling around the world and making memories with her family.

She opened up about her grief on Instagram in late December after celebrating Hanukkah with her husband and children.
‘This is the first holiday season since my mother passed away. It’s true: grieving during the holidays can be harder than any other time of year,’ she wrote.
‘Learning to celebrate differently is a challenge. I’m trying to be kind, patient and compassionate with myself and make space for all the emotions I’m feeling.
‘New memories are being made, my children’s smiles abound, the presence of my 96-year-old grandmother at our table brings joy to us all, yet the emptiness is undeniable, she continued.
‘The loss of a parent is a very painful passage in life for which no one is ever fully prepared. It strikes at the very core of your being. And it takes a long time to get over how it displaces you.
‘To those who have experienced the loss of a loved one this year, may hope sustain you, may good memories comfort you, may friends and family surround you and may love give you strength,’ he concluded.
