Sigrid Olga Nissen McCain passed away at her home surrounded by family on December 3rd, 2022.  Daughter of Mary Sybil Williamson, and Carl Julius Nissen.  She was born in Iowa and raised in Albuquerque, NM.  

Sig moved to North Carolina from Albuquerque after she met and married her husband Terry McCain while he was stationed there in the army.  After moving to NC she worked at Burlington Industries, where she retired in 1997 after 38 years.  

Her passion, however, was for children.  A staple at her church, Charlotte United Methodist, Sig taught Sunday school for over 50 years.  No child ever left her class without something they made to take home with them.  

Sig also dedicated over 36 years to being a 4-H club leader.  She led the Happy Heifer club and countless summer classes during her time.  She coached 4-Hers to state competitions and was a fixture at dairy events.  

Sig was preceded in death by her husband Terry, her brother Gaillard Nissen, and her sisters, Hilda Riddick, Greta Cox, and Carline Reid.   She leaves behind her sister Sonja Peters and husband Gary, her children, Kirsten Frazier and husband Craig, Carl McCain and wife Deborah, grandchildren Jeremy McCain and wife Laura, Aaron McCain and wife Mandy, Kerri Frazier, Katie Cannizzaro and husband Stefano, Terri Frazier, and Adam Frazier and wife Rachel.  Her great-grandchildren: Raegen, Riverlyn, Parker, Adaline, and Turner.  And her beloved cat Patch.
