Roberta McCain, the adventurous and outspoken mother of late Arizona Sen. John McCain and grandmother of The View co-host Meghan McCain, has died. She was 108.

Her death was announced by her daughter-in-law Cindy McCain, who wrote in a tweet on Monday that “I couldn’t have asked for a better role model or a better friend.”

Cindy wrote that Roberta “joins her husband Jack, her son John and daughter Sandy,” all of whom died before her.

TV anchor Greta Van Susteren, who considered herself Roberta’s best friend, tells PEOPLE Roberta “died peacefully” at home on Monday afternoon, with her surviving son Joe at her side. Van Susteren says Roberta did not die of the novel coronavirus but had had “labored breathing” and “started failing a few days ago.”

Roberta will be buried next to her husband, late Navy Adm. John “Jack” McCain

Countless commenters gushed about what a joy it was to finally feel “seen” — and thirsting after him a bit.

“Never in my adult life have I seen a male model that has a similar body to mine,” one Twitter
