Where there’s a Wilbourn

Judith Wilbourn, a rural carrier in Okemah, OK, was recently making deliveries when she grew concerned about a customer whose mail was piling up unusually.

Wilbourn alerted the woman’s neighbors, who soon checked on her and found her stranded in her yard, where she’d fallen several days earlier.

They ensured she received the care she needed, and she recovered from the incident.

One of the neighbors later called the local postmaster to thank Wilbourn for saving the woman’s life.

Employees featured in “Heroes’ Corner” also receive letters of commendation through the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program. The nomination form is available on Blue.
