BUZZ: Patty Raynes, Socialite, Dies in New York City Before Night Out

Late socialite Patty Raynes was eager to get back to her “highly social” life in New York City before her housekeeper discovered her lifeless body in her Wellington, Fla., home on Thursday. Raynes’ best friend, Anna Rothschild, told Page Six that she last texted with Raynes on Monday, and Raynes’ final text to her read: “Coming home the 28th, let’s do so much fun stuff!”

Her mother, Barbara, said she was devastated after her daughter’s passing.

On Friday, her sister, Nancy, posted a tribute on Instagram and wrote: “Heaven has a new Angel.” She also wrote: “I’m beyond shocked and devastated to lose my fun, loving, loyal and caring sister with no warning and not getting to give her one last kiss, one last hug and one last time of telling her how much I really loved her . . .
