She grew up in Dibble and attended school there. On July 18, 1956, she and Mr. Bill Self were united in marriage at the McClain County Courthouse. Mr. Self was a career Navy man. They moved to California, where he would be stationed until his retirement, and they made their way home back to Oklahoma. They made their home in Lindsay before moving to Noble 18 years ago.

Mrs. Self was well known for her cooking. She would collect recipe books and try them all out on her family. She enjoyed embroidery work and feeding her hummingbirds and all other birds. She was a full-time homemaker, caring for her husband and two children; then the grandchildren started coming, and that was even better for her to enjoy. She loved her family.
