About Roberta McCain (Wright)


Roberta Wright McCain (born February 7, 1912) is the widow of Admiral John S. McCain, Jr. (married from 1933 to 1981) and mother of the Republican Arizona Senator and two-time Presidential candidate John McCain.


Roberta Wright and her twin sister, Rowena, were born in Muskogee, Oklahoma on February 7, 1912. Her parents, Archibald Wright (1876 - 1971), a Los Angeles oil wildcatter, and Myrtle Fletcher (1885 - 1972), were married in Cleburne, Texas, on June 18, 1901.


On January 21, 1933, she married Admiral John S. McCain, Jr. in Caesar's Bar, Tijuana, Mexico. She became the daughter-in-law of Admiral John S. McCain, Sr.

Roberta McCain had three children. Sandy McCain Morgan (born 1934), John McCain (born 1936), and Joe McCain (born 1942).

Her son, John, was held as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam for five and a half years. When notified upon his release on March 15, 1973, that he had shouted expletives at his captors, Mrs. McCain's response was, "Johnny, I'm going to come over there and wash your mouth out with soap."

John McCain has said of his mother: "My mother was raised to be a strong, determined woman who thoroughly enjoyed life, and always tried to make the most of her opportunities. She was encouraged to accept, graciously and with good humor, the responsibilities and sacrifices her choices have required of her. I am grateful to her for the strengths she taught me by example."

McCain campaigned during her son's 2008 presidential campaign, and remains active despite her advanced age. On October 22, 2009, she was hospitalized in Portugal after she fell and injured her head.
