She and her husband, Joe Lara, were killed in a plane crash in 2021.

An investigation into Shamblin Lara's will was conducted after her death.

Upon her death in May 2021, an investigation into Shamblin Lara's will involved an estate possibly worth millions.

"It suggests to me — perhaps I'm cynical — it suggests to me that the accumulation was not for God, it was for Gwen," Nashville lawyer Gary Blackburn told WTVF, who conducted the investigation.

These properties included a Florida beach house valued at more than $4million, another mansion in Brentwood at around $7million.

The Shamblins paid nearly $2million when they purchased it in 2010. But Zillow now values the home at $4million.

Born in Memphis in February 1955, Shamblin Lara was the author of the 1997 book, The Weigh Down Diet, "a groundbreaking approach to weight loss," according to the book's description.

The first part of the docuseries aired in September 2021, taking a look at Shamblin Lara's ascent to fame through her diet program and the founding of her church.
