L’Wren was asked about her Mormon upbringing in an article for the UK’s Sunday Times. She replied, “I think (being raised Mormon) probably enhanced my perception of morality, standards and overall achievement. My upbringing was about family, less about religion. I think people have lots of misconceptions about religion, and I think very much about Mormons. But my experience of that was only positive, and it’s filled me with values I may not have had the luxury of being given had I not been raised that way.”
On March 17, 2014, L’Wren was found dead in her apartment by her assistant. The cause of death was suicide.
