“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my beautiful mother-in-law, Roberta McCain,” Cindy McCain wrote on Twitter. “I couldn’t ask for a better role model or a better friend. She joins her husband Jack, son John and daughter Sandy.”
Roberta McCain attended her son’s funeral in Washington after the Arizona Republican died in 2018 of brain cancer in 2018.
McCain’s matriarch was a frequent participant in the campaign when her son ran for president in 2008. Energetic wife Roberta McCain traveled regularly, including to Europe in the 1990s.
