Besides her daughter in Washington, Mrs. McWaid is survived by a daughter, Mrs. William (Jean) Menzel, Belgrade; four sisters, Mrs. Laura K. Ballard and Mrs. Tom (Ouida) Campbell, both of Manhattan, Mrs. Queen Bly and Mrs. Charles (Mary) Sales, both of Bozeman; 15 grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and numerous nephews and nieces. Two brothers preceded her in death.

Interment will be in the Meadowview Cemetery at Manhattan.
