Roberta McCain’s son, the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), died in August at the age of 81 just more than a year after being diagnosed with brain cancer. The 106-year-old attended her son’s funeral service in Washington, D.C.

The late senator praised his mother in one of his books, crediting her for "the strengths she taught [him] by example."
