About Donnie Wilburn: (Excerpt from KUOW broadcast by Marcie Sillman) "Donnie Wilburn, [Suzanne] Ragen’s friend and longtime fellow docent, is also part of the tour. Wilburn lost her sight several years ago, a rare side effect after she underwent a major surgery. Even though she couldn’t see anymore, Wilburn didn’t want to lose her ties to the museum, or to the art she loves so she helped create the first ACCESS tours. [In the photo] Docent laureate Suzanne Ragen sits between docent Donnie Wilburn and patron Camille Jassny, who are both visually impared, at the Seattle Art Musuem (along withi Jassny's guide dog, Brietta)."
Bill Ritchie: "I think I spoke to Donnie Wilburn on the telephone, and I have a handwritten address for her in Bellevue. This was before she lost her sight."
