McDonald's employee Loraine Maurer celebrated her 44th anniversary at the fast food eatery in Evansville, Indiana, last week.

Maurer, 94, has worked at various McDonald's throughout the Evansville area; working on every shift through her more than four decades of service, People magazine reported.

"If you don't like your job, it's a job, but I love it," Maurer told People last week. "The people, the clientele, that's why I stuck with it."

The Evansville Courier & Post wrote that dozens of people visited Maurer at the McDonald's on North Green River Road on March 23 to help her celebrate her anniversary. The newspaper said she is currently working the morning shift Fridays and Saturdays and has no intention of retiring.

"I get in here at 5 o'clock when they open," Maurer told a customer about her current shift, according to the Courier & Post. "I have to get up at three."

While some people are in the middle of their sleep at that time, Maurer said she is inspired by the people that she meets each day she works, noted People.

"My customers make my life," Maurer told People. "I have traveled with them, gone to ball games with them. They're friends, not just customers."

Chip and Katie Kenworthy, the owners of the McDonald's franchise where the 94-year-old currently works, planned the party for Maurer, Fox News reported.

"After all these years, she remains committed to serving her customers with one of the most delightful smiles around," The Kenworthys said in a statement, according to Fox News. "Loraine has a loyal following of customers and they look forward to having her take their orders when visiting McDonald's."

And while many healthy eating studies have knocked eating at McDonald's and other fast food locations, Maurer admitted she's had a regular diet from the restaurant since starting there in 1973, noted People. Her favorite item – the fish sandwich.

But then again, she added to Fox News, "there isn't anything I don't like."

Maurer's inspiring feat has traveled around the world, with news outlets from Europe, Canada, and New Zealand picking up her story.
