Alma Louise Self, 92, a former longtime resident of El Segundo, died Monday, Oct 3, in Tucson, Ariz. She was born June 18, 1896, in Missouri.

During World War II, Self went to work for McDonnell Douglas as a tool room stock clerk,, retiring 20 years later. She was an active participant with the former El Segundo Women's Volleyball Club and, after retirement, with the El Segundo Senior Citizens Club, where she enjoyed square dancing and crafts, often providing the table decorations for functions at the Joslyn Center.

Survivors include two sons, Donald of El Segundo and Orbin of Arizona; two daughters, Velta Bruce of El Segundo and Vickie Peterson of Arizona; 13 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
