The Conjuring series played a vital role in reviving the Horror franchise for moviegoers of this decade. That wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for Ed and Lorraine, the paranormal investigators are well known for taking on several high profile incidents such as the Amityville haunting.
Earlier today, it was revealed that Lorraine Warren passed away at 92. The Conjuring cast Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga tweeted about the death of the demonologist and paid their tribute.
“The heavens will surely burn a little brighter tonight. We lost a friend and [an] inspiration,” Wilson wrote on Twitter. “I will miss the stories, the laughter, and the guidance. Rest In Peace, Sweet Lorraine. Tell Ed I said hello.”
Farmiga also echoed the same sentiments and was appreciative of her career and life and was thankful to have known 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,” the actress tweeted.
The passing of Warren was announced by her grandson and son-in-law, Tony Spera, via a statement on Facebook. It was noted that she passed away “peacefully” and was smiling and laughing till the very end.
“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 announcement stated. “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.”
While the couple who inspired this franchise have passed on, their stories will continue to see the light on the big screens. The third Conjuring film is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2020. Currently, another film titled, The Curse Of La Llorona, based on similar true events is in theaters.
