Her creative and romantic partner Marc Maron, who appeared in her most recent film “Sword of Trust,” confirmed her death in a statement, quoted in Indiewire: “I have some awful news. Lynn passed away last night. She collapsed yesterday morning after having been ill for a week.” He stated that her death was not COVID-19, but “a previously unknown, underlying condition . . . The doctors could not save her. They tried. Hard.”
“I loved her very much as I know many of you did as well. It’s devastating. I am leveled, heartbroken and in complete shock and don’t really know how to move forward in this moment. I needed you all to know. I don’t know some of you. Some I do. I’m just trying to let the people who were important to her know.
