Lorraine Warren, the real-life inspiration behind “The Conjuring” films, has passed away at age 92.
Warren died in her sleep Thursday night according to a Facebook post by her grandson Chris McKinnell. He wrote, “Last night my grandmother, Lorraine Warren, quietly and peacefully left us to join her beloved Ed.”Vera Farmiga, who has played Warren in four films including the upcoming “Annabelle Comes Home,” remembered the psychic investigator on Twitter.
“My dear friend Lorraine Warren has passed. From a deep feeling of sorrow, a deep feeling of gratitude emerges. I was so blessed to have known her and am honored to portray her. She lived her life in grace and cheerfulness. She wore a helmet of salvation, she dawned her sword, compassion, and took a shield of faith. Righteousness was her breastplate, and she has touched my life so. Love you Lorraine. You’re waltzing with Ed now.”
Lorraine’s husband, Ed passed away in 2006. Patrick Wilson, who plays Ed in the “Conjuring” films, also paid tribute to Lorraine today.
He tweeted, “The heavens will surely burn a little brighter tonight. We lost a friend and and inspiration. I will miss the stories, the laughter, and the guidance. Rest In Peace, Sweet Lorraine. Tell Ed I said hello.”
Warren served as a consultant on the first “Conjuring” film and also made a cameo appearance.
