"It makes sense that there is no sense without God." -- Edith Schaeffer
Edith Schaeffer (born November 3, 1914) (born Edith Rachel Merritt Seville) is a Christian author, and co-founder of L'Abri. She is the widow of Francis Schaeffer.

Edith was born in Wenzhou, China, the fourth child of George and Jessie Seville, missionaries who were serving in China with the China Inland Mission. In addition to her English name, her parents gave her the Chinese name Mei Fuh, meaning "beautiful happiness".

Edith attended Beaver College in Glenside, Pennsylvania. It was there that she met Francis Schaeffer, and they were married in 1935. They had four children: Priscilla, Susan, Debbie and Frank.

They were sent in 1948 to Switzerland by the Independent Board for Presbyterian Foreign Missions. In 1955 they began L'Abri, a community that welcomed people who were seeking answers to questions about God and the meaning of life.

Francis died in 1984; Edith is now living near two of her children, in Switzerland.
