Her husband, Edward Grinan, shared the news on Facebook: “She has left her kingdom on her own terms. No regrets. In peace ”, the widower has written. "I touched her [canción] Roam during your transition. He now he will wander forever.” She had been diagnosed with lupus in 2018 and had stated at times that she suffered from chronic pain.

Cruise studied French horn at Drake University and performed as a singer and actress in Minneapolis. She also substituted on occasion for the vocalist of the group B-52. But what propelled her to stardom was her collaboration with Lynch and Badalamenti on the Twin Peaks soundtrack, which became a cult tune and chart hit around the world. The theme, written by the director of the series, was part of her debut album Floating Into the Night, released in 1989.

Cruise made a cameo appearance in Twin Peaks, singing at the town bar, and in the 2014 film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. He also appeared in Twin Peaks: The Return, the third season of the series that Lynch produced in 2017. Music-wise, he released three more albums apart from the first between 1993 and 2011.
