John McCain's mother seems healthy at 106 years of age
Roberta Wright McCain, John McCain III’s mother, is now 106 years old and appears to be in amazing health for the circumstances.
Her biography includes eloping in Mexico in 1933 to a Navy ensign.
My own mother died shortly after her 97th birthday in December 2010, but had undergone coronary bypass surgery in May 1999. At the time, at age 85, her life expectancy with the surgery was seven years. She got eleven, eight of them without much decline. The official cause of death would be aortic stenosis.
