Bernie Sanders’ Daughter-In-Law Dies At 46

According to TMZ, Bernie Sanders’ daughter-in-law has unfortunately passed away. It was said that Rainé Riggs died on Sunday from cancer.

Rainé had just been diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer 2 days prior to her death. She had fallen mysteriously ill about 3 weeks earlier, according to the Lee & Martin Funeral Home in Burgettstown, PA, and her obituary.

Rainé was married to Bernie’s son, Levi Sanders, and had 3 children together. She was a successful neuropsychologist and was the former director of behavioral medicine at Dartmouth Medical School. Rainé Riggs was just 46 years old.

The tragic news comes just days after Bernie had a health scare himself. He suffered a heart attack last week and is currently recovering. It was noted that Rainé died the same day the senator and presidential hopeful was released from the hospital and returned to Vermont.

Hollywood Unlocked would like to send our deepest condolences to Bernie Sanders and his family as they deal with this difficult loss.
