Altar Frontal

altarfrontalThe carving of the Altar frontal was done by Art McKellips of Tacoma and is made of bass wood. The scene is from St. John 21. The border is vine leaves and grapes; the four corner symbols are for Good Friday, Easter, the Church and the Old Testament. The committee who designed this was Eleanor Marrazzo, Jim Morrell, Virginia Shaffer, Helen Pahl, Polly Hickman and the Rev. J.W.Bertolin.

This lovely frontal was dedicated on Palm Sunday in Memory of Alice Lynton Morrell who died April 29, 1971 at age 22 years. In 1969 she became paralyzed from a tumor on her spine. She and Jim Morrell were married in St. Andrew’s in 1969 and they entered into all the programs of the church including helping the office, church school and E.C.W. This was accomplished with grace while Lynn was confined to a wheel chair. Alice Lynton Morrell was a beautiful young lady who attended St. Andrew’s for just less than two years but will be remembered with this memorial given by her husband, mother, aunts and friends.
