In Loving Memory


7 April 1937 – 23 February 2022

You can shed tears that she is gone
or you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember her and only that she’s gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
or you can do what she’d want:
open your eyes,
and go on.

Jo Self passed away peacefully on the 23rd of February at the Friendship Square Memory Care Facility in Mesa, Arizona.

Jo was born in Boulder, Colorado to Russel and Bernice Gregory on 7 April 1937.  She graduated from Boulder High School and completed her college degree at Mesa Community College in Arizona.  She married the late Chuck Self (USAF retired) in 1955 and traveled the world with him.

Her parents, and siblings (Greg, Jeanne, Jim, Bill & Susie ) as well as her middle son Robb have all predeceased her.  She is survived by her children: Cindy (Mark), Ric (Tina), Sharon (Ken) & Rory (Karen) along with 11 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.

A small celebration of life will be held on 9 April. Graveside services will be conducted this summer in Boulder, Colorado – date to be determined.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. My thoughts, prayers and love are with all of you

  2. We would like to let you all know what a wonderful person your Mom was. I knew her as a very tall and quiet Lady. But of course when she was at my MOM’s house your Dad did all the talking. LOL So glad she was in my life. our prayers are with you and all the family. Love to all. Raydene (Alley) and Larry Plane.

  3. Your Mom was the first other Mom I had, and it was an honor to call her Mom all these years. So many great memories, of walking in the kitchen at your home and she was always making Swiss steak. Driving in that blue station wagon, and she went around the block twice when we were near your house(at Willie) to run over a paper cup! A very dry sense of humor that always made us laugh. Her greatest accomplishment was the 5 Self kids, much love to all of you and lots of prayers.
    Into Paradise Prayer May angels lead you into paradise. Upon your arrival, may the martyrs receive you and lead to the holy city of Jerusalem. May the ranks of angels receive you, and with Lazarus, the poor man, may you have eternal rest.
