We have some very sad news to share today from the paranormal realm… investigator Lorraine Warren, whose work (along with her husband, Ed) served as the basis for the Conjuring films, has passed away at the age of 92.
The official word on her passing came via the New England Society for Psychic Research (founded by the Warrens in 1952) on Facebook:
The NESPR team regretfully announces the passing of our loving teacher, mentor, friend, mother, Lorraine…
It is with deep sadness that I must announce that Lorraine Warren has passed away. She died peacefully in her sleep at home last night. The family requests that you respect their privacy at this time.
Lorraine touched many lives and was loved by so many. She was a remarkable, loving, compassionate and giving soul. To quote Will Rogers, she never met a person she didn’t like.
She was an avid animal lover and contributed to many animal charities and rescues.
She was wonderful and giving to her entire family.
May God bless her.
Per The Wrap, the Warrens’ most famous investigations include the Annabelle doll, the Enfield Poltergeist, the Amityville Horror, and the Perron family. The dynamic duo also established the Warrens’ Occult Museum in the back of their home in Monroe, Connecticut, which houses many of the artifacts they collected during their studies.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to Lorraine’s family members, friends, and associates. God bless her indeed!
