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 included a black-and-white photo of herself snuggled between her mother and her maternal grandmother, Marie Zelníčková, who is 97 and still divides her time with her grandchildren.
Ivanka’s siblings are not pictured, but Don Jr. posted the full image on Instagram Friday, writing, “We miss you mom.”
The last image he shared was a black and white photo of his mother smiling in a field that looked like it was taken in the 1970s.
The post received more than 20,000 likes and hundreds of comments within an hour, including a message from designer Dennis Basso.
“I miss my good friend,” Basso wrote of the late socialite, who was a close friend and a regular at his fashion shows.
Ivana was found dead at the age of 73 in her New York rowhome on July 14, 2022, after suffering blunt-impact injuries as a result of a fall down a flight of stairs.

“Ivanka is spending precious time with her husband and children, doing what she loves most, being a mother,” a source told People of the former first daughter’s plans on Friday.
She opened up about her grief on Instagram in late December after celebrating Hanukkah with her husband and children.
‘This is the first Christmas season since my mother passed away. It’s true: grieving during the holidays can be tougher than any other time of the year,” she wrote.
‘Learning to celebrate differently is a challenge. I’m trying to be kind and patient and compassionate to myself and honor and make room for all the emotions I’m experiencing.
“New memories are being made, my children’s laughter is abundant, my 96-year-old grandmother’s presence at our table fills us all with joy, but the emptiness is undeniable,” she continued.
‘The loss of a parent is one of life’s most painful moments for which one is never fully prepared. It hits the very core of your being. And it takes a fair amount of time to get out of how it dislocates you.
“To everyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one this year, may hope sustain you, may fond memories bring comfort, may friends and family surround you, and may love give you strength,” he concluded.
