All Hallows Guild has recently lost two extraordinary and dedicated members.

Remembering Kimmarie Brown Jamison and Hilda Hutchins McCollum – individuals of amazing capability and generous spirit.

Kimmarie Brown Jamison

Kimmarie Brown Jamison of Washington, DC, attended Spelman College. As a full-time DC government employee and mother of three children attending Cathedral schools, she showed remarkable dedication to the Guild.  Kimmarie spent many years working on Flower Mart, first with Children’s Rides and Games of which she became chair and later bringing her considerable organizational skills to the chairmanship of Special Events. Although her tenure on the Guild board was brief, Kimmarie personified that spirit of caring and supporting that is the hallmark of All Hallows Guild and the other institutions on the Cathedral Close.

Hilda Hutchins McCollum

Hailing from Bangor, Maine, Hilda Hutchins McCollum spent many years in the Washington area.  A graduate of Madeira and Colby College, Hilda was actively involved with All Hallows Guild and other area charitable organizations.  She was imbued with a joyful energy and a productive hands-on manner, serving for ten years as an active AHG board member, then as an associate for 23 years.  She was a versatile and generous volunteer: Chair of the 1987 Flower Mart saluting Sweden, a long-time Tour and Tea volunteer, a Guild officer, and member of a number of Guild committees. Hilda also gave Coco, the carousel zebra, in memory of her mother and to honor the artists of the Nation’s Capital Chapter of the National Society of Tole and Decorative Painters.


All Hallows Guild was founded in 1916 to provide for the care and beautification of the grounds of Washington National Cathedral. The Guild works closely with the horticultural staff to preserve this historic landscape and raises funds for renovation and renewal of the gardens.
