  1. Harold, Linda, and family, My deepest condolences and sincere prayers are offered for the soul of Catherine. She is above looking over you all. May God provide you the stregnth to carry on as a testament to her love in your lives Chuck Anderson PTA at Beach Cities Care Center

  2. I remember visiting Catherine and her family back in 1964 or 1965 (a long time ago) on a trip west with my family, Paul and Juanita Sears, and sister Elizabeth. I remember what a wonderful hostess she was and the effort she made to make our visit a memorable one. I have kept up with her over the years through my parents and regret that I was not able to visit with her more often. My condolences to all of you. Hopefully, our paths will cross sometime. Paul has always kept us informed about your family over the years. Your mother and wife was a lovely lady, and I know all who knew her have suffered a great loss.

  3. I only met Mrs. Self a couple of times but I appreciated and admired her quick smile and gentle spirit. Jim Puter friend of David and Cindy Self Salem OR

  4. Heaven has surely gained a very special angel in Catherine. We were all blessed to have known her and shared in her smile and kindness.
