Additionally, for Roberta's 100th birthday, Meghan wrote about how she and her father late senator John McCain inherited their "maverick gene" from the centenarian in a 2012 article for The Daily Beast.

She recalled her grandmother joining the family on the road while the senator was campaigning to be president in 2008. "When she rode on my father's bus, she had a tendency to grill his advisers on their strategy," Meghan wrote.

"She was really our secret weapon, skillfully charming reporters and putting to rest any questions about what aging looks like in the McCain family."

Meghan's mother, Cindy McCain, announced Roberta's passing earlier on Monday. "It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my wonderful Mother In-law, Roberta McCain. I couldn't have asked for a better role model or a better friend," she wrote. "She joins her husband Jack, her son John and daughter Sandy."
