Sen. McCain’s widow, Cindy, declared her mother-in-law’s departure on Twitter, writing,”It’s with Good sadness that I announce the passing of my Superb Mom In-law, Roberta McCain. I could not have asked for a much better role model or even a better buddy. She combines her husband Jack, her son John and daughter Sandy.”
Roberta McCain and her identical twin Rowena (who perished 2011) were created February 7, 1912, at Muskegee, Oklahoma. A petroleum heiress, she eloped with naval ensign John S. McCain Jr., who moved on to develop into a admiral.
A mom of 3, McCain had been a stalwart supporter of the famous kid’s, such as when he was seized during the Vietnam War and because of regular presence throughout his 2008 governmental effort.
A maverick than her son, she appeared on”The Tonight Show” in a meeting with Jay Leno — but just later McCain/Palin lost. The late booking has been”because I speak a lot,” she told Leno, confessing that the campaign was attempting to keep her silent.
A tireless world traveller, her public looks slowed following her 100th birthday along with a stroke, even although she’d attend ceremonies honoring the late senator if he expired at August 2018.
Together with her son, McCain was preceded in death by her twin, and her husband, along with her own daughter. She’s survived by her son Joe McCain, 10 grandma, also 11 great-grandchildren.
