(WFSB) -- Paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren passed away Thursday night at the age of 92.

Lorraine and her husband Ed have been “considered America’s preeminent experts on the subject of spirits and demonology,” for over 50 years.

Her husband died in 2006.

The New England Society for Psychic Research (NESPR), founded by the Warrens in 1952, announced Lorraine's death on their Facebook page. The group the oldest ghost-hunting organization in New England.

In Facebook post, her son-in-law said Lorraine died peacefully in her home.

“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,” the post said.

The couple investigated thousands of hauntings, many of which were inspiration for movies, like the Amityville and Conjuring film series, and The Haunting in Connecticut.

In the 1970s, the Warrens visited "The Stonehouse," the old building where the I-95 rock radio station broadcasted. It was there she found a ghost named "Lester."

Lorraine believed not all ghostly encounters need to be frightening, rather she coached people on what to do and what not to do.

"Getting involved with spells and witchcraft, that is the thing that I warn against. Above all, Ouija boards," she said in a past interview with Channel 3.

The Warrens lived in Monroe, CT.
