Lorraine drew her last breath on Thursday, April 18, 2019, at the age of 92. According to her grandson, Chris McKinnell, she died peacefully in her sleep at her home.

Farmiga couldn't help but remember the great woman she had the pleasure and honor to call a friend, claiming that Lorraine's "righteousness was her breastplate."

A POSITIVE INFLUENCE IN HER LIFE

According to the 45-year-old, who played the role of Lorraine in four films, including the upcoming "Annabelle Comes Home," the demonologist was someone who really touched her life.

She wrote:

"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"

WHO WHERE THE WARRENS

Ed and Lorraine were considered to be the pioneers of demonology and the study of the paranormal. Together, they investigated over 10,000 cases of hauntings, possessions and paranormal activity.

Ed and Lorraine's adventures, which include the tragedy of Amityville, inspired authors and filmmakers to create books and movies, such as "The Amityville Horror," "The Conjuring" movies, "Annabelle" and "The Nun."
