Who is Roberta McCain?
Roberta McCain, real name is Roberta Wright McCain, was born on February 7, 1912, in Muskogee, Oklahoma in the United States of America. She is known as the widow of Admiral John S.McCain Sir and mother of the late Senator John S.McCain III. She proved to be a very strong, brave and energetic lady because she lost her husband and son in the name of the country. Both the veterans were serving the United States of America until they took their last breath.
When she came to know her son was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, she cried but show tolerance like a brave lady. She was also aware of when her son refused to continue his treatment. And from the death of his son to burial, she attended all the events and memorial services like an undaunted, invulnerable and invincible lady. On the funeral of her son, John McCain, her courage was commendable. From her parental ride, she belonged to a well-off family. His father was Archibald Wright and mother Myrtle Mae Fletcher. Her mother delivered identical twin daughters on February 7, 1912. So the name of her identical twin sister was Rowena Wright. She married Admiral John S.McCain Jr. in 1933; she remained his wife until he died in 1981. She always loved to be a widow of a Navy admiral. Therefore, she did not marry again. She gave birth to McCain jr’s three children:
(i) Jean McCain
(ii) John S.McCain
(iii) Joe McCain
Her son John McCain, whom she used to call Johnny, celebrated her 106th birthday on February enthusiastically. She attended her son’s funeral services on her wheelchair. Everyone paid his regards and conveyed their condolences to her. On the funeral and memorial services, everyone wanted to know who is the Black lady on John McCain’s funeral? In my opinion, McCain’s mother, the 106 years old lady, was the black lady on the Funeral. Even when Meghan was weeping and crying while her father was being paid tribute, Roberta McCain was encouraging her to be patient. She was consolidating her grand-daughter.
On Saturday, September 1, 2018, she attended the funeral services at the Washington National Cathedral. And on Sunday, she was at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis to say goodbye to her beloved son. Although it is very difficult for a mother to see her child burying in front of her, yet she exhibited extreme courage and proved to be the bravest lady. Therefore, John McCain always declared his mother a very strong lady. Her strength let her always stand like a firm rock in all the evens and odds of life.
When John McCain was alive, he wrote a memoir, ”Faith of My Fathers”, about his family. In which he told how the men in his family were raised to go to wars to defend their country. As per him, his mother courageously sent the men to war. One of them was her husband John S McCain jr and second man John McCain himself. She along with her husband, visited the whole USA. And she enjoyed every moment of life with him. McCain used to say the resilience and extraordinary strength of his personality have been inherited from his mother, Roberta McCain.
At the age of 106, apparently, she looks normal. There is no clear evidence of whether she is suffering from any disease or not. But she is unable to move or walk. She always remains on a wheelchair. John McCain was very much concerned about his mother’s health. Despite leading a life of a busy politician, Senator, and congressman, he used to take great care of his mother’s health. He was one of his 2 siblings, who was very close to his mother and adapted most of her habits.
Roberta McCain’s net worth, height, weight, and other physical characteristics are not known. Being an old lady, she was not a socialite. She likes to stay and enjoy with her family that is everything for her, especially the demised son, Johnny.
