Lorraine and her late husband, Ed Warren, were America’s preeminent paranormal investigators, and the stories of their investigations were the inspiration for numerous books and films.

The Warrens

Ed was a World War II United States Navy veteran and former police officer, who later became a self-taught demonologist.

Lorraine claimed to be a clairvoyant, as well as, a light trance medium who worked with her husband, forming the New England Society for Psychic Research in 1952.

The couple also ran The Warrens’ Occult Museum, which was located in the back of Lorraine’s house in Monroe, Connecticut, which included objects and memorabilia from their famous cases, including the haunted Raggedy Ann doll that was allegedly possessed by the spirit of a young girl named Annabelle Higgins.

The pair claimed to have investigated over 10,000 paranormal cases during their career.

Goodbye, Lorraine

We thought this very sweet moment between the Warrens as depicted in The Conjuring 2 would be a fitting way to say goodbye to Lorraine.
