Memorial window dedicated to Jim and Amy Jolliffe in All Saints Anglican church at Canowindra
This window is one of three that were commissioned in 1990 by their eldest daughter (Stella Pelissot) in memory of her husbands Jon Willemsen and Jacques Pelissot and her parents Jim and Amy Jolliffe. They were made by the Finglinna Studios in Peakhurst NSW.
The third window is dedicated to her parents, Jim and Amy Jolliffe (nee Gardner). The symbols here are of a general glory of nature but are also specific. The phoenix symbolises immortality - the long family tradition and continuity - and it stands for faith, constancy and the resurrection, as do the butterflies. The brolga reiterates the immortality idea and the larks fly towards heaven.
