This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Following is genealogy information on Edson Rorarabeck and his wife, Helen Marr Smith:

HELEN MARR SMITH, b. March 28, 1905, Lake Mills, Jefferson County, Wisconsin; m. EDSON CHARLES RORABECK, March 29, 1927, Azusa, Los Angeles County, California; b. January 20, 1902, Chinook, Pacific County, Washington; d. July 21, 1966, Azusa, Los Angeles County, California.
Helen said that all her sisters had been teachers and that she didn't want to be a teacher. So, she did something different. She was the school superintendents secretary. Helen was the second wife of Edson. He had a daughter from a previous marriage. Helen has lived in the same house since 1928.

 Rorabeck family came from Michigan. Edson was an artist by trade.

Burial: Redlands, San Bernardino County, California

Note from Steve Crise, Pacific Electric Railway Historical Society

I am a collector of railroad memorabilia with a focus on the Pacific Electric Railway that operated in the Los Angeles area from 1900 to 1961.

I have a timetable cover that is credited to Edson Rorabeck.
