Who is Loraine Maurer and what did she do to make her newsworthy? In a world that seems to be turning itself upside down, the this gentle 94-year old woman named Loraine Maurer has crossed a significant threashold. She lives in Evansville, Indiana, USA were she has established herself as a fast food icon.
In a recent celebration, the 94-year young woman was presented a cake and a special thank you from a local McDonald’s that she has worked at for an amazing 44 years. That’s right! At the age of fifty when most people are starting to think about retiring, Loraine went to work and began a career that has spanned more than four decades.
As part of the anniversary celebration, store owners Chip and Katie Kenworthy issued this written statement directed at their most coveted and loyal employee: “After all these years, she remains committed to serving her customers with one of the most delightful smiles around. Loraine has a loyal following of customers and they look forward to having her take their orders when visiting McDonald’s.”
Not only has she worked at this location for all of these years, she has also established herself as one of the store’s most loyal customers. During every shift she has worked over the years, she has taken the opportunity to have McDonald’s food for her meal breaks. At lunch and dinner time, she prefers the fish sandwich. The breakfast shift creates more of a dilemma because it seems she likes everything on the menu and likes to mix things up.
Along with the four children she has raised, she counts among her family all the great customers she has encountered over all these years. While Lorraine doesn’t drive anymore, there’s never a shortage of friends and McDonald’s customers who are willing to give her a ride to or from work.
According to Loraine, she has no plans to retire anytime soon.
