Biography

Edith was born Dec. 15, 1892, to Henry Bascom and Julia Ann (Read) Forrey. She was the youngest of nine children. Edith Forrey grew up on the family farm in Harrison township, Jewell county, Kansas. The family owned the north east quarter of section 22. Edith earned a teaching certificate, but I'm not sure from where. Edith taught school for a year or two in southern Kansas, then moved to Idaho, where 3 of her siblings were living. I know she spent some time in Idaho, as that is where Edith and Peter corresponded during this time, while he finished college in California. Soon after they became engaged, Edith contracted Thyphus, and almost died, losing most of her hair. They were married on Christmas of 1913, in Kuna, Idaho. Edith and Peter moved to Pasadena, California, where he taught at Pasadena high school, which then became Pasadena City College. They got a collie dog, and had two children. They planned to go to China as missionaries, and Edith studied Chinese. However, they changed their plans, when China became dangerous. They later had a 3rd child. In the 1950's, Edith and Peter moved to Santa Barbara. Edith was diagnosed with cancer in early 1961. They operated, but the cancer was too far advanced, and they were not able to remove it all. She passed away on Oct. 21, 1961.
