French-born Isabelle Collin Dufresne, aka Andy Warhol's sidekick, Ultra Violet, was among the most unlikely Mormon converts ever.
She died Saturday at age 78 and her funeral was held Wednesday in an LDS chapel on the east side of New York City.
Dufresne left France at 19 for America in the freedom-loving '60s. She met Warhol in 1964, when she was dining with her then-lover, painter Salvador Dali, according to The New York Times. Warhol cast her in several of his films, including "The Life of Juanita Castro," an improvised black-and-white political comedy, and "I, a Man."
Soon she morphed into the flamboyant Ultra Violet and joined Warhol's pop universe of parties, drugs, orgies, art and filmmaking.
