About the Foundation
The C. Edward and Edith Strobel Charitable Trust was established by Carolus Edward Strobel and his wife, Edith McCammon Strobel, on July 3, 1968. A little over a year after signing the trust agreement, Edward and Edith were involved in a tragic two-car collision. Edward died instantly, and Edith passed away ten days later of injuries from the same accident.
Edward Strobel was born in Oregon on June 4, 1897. Edith McCammon was born in Iowa on November 11, 1894. Edward and Edith never had children of their own.
