99-Year-Old McDonald’s Worker Shares Her Secret To A Long And Happy Life

Every day Ruth Shuster comes to work at McDonald’s in Pennsylvania, she gives it 110 per cent -- and the customers appreciate it.

Shuster isn’t your typical McDonald’s employee.

She turned 99 years old on Tuesday -- and you would never guess it because of how fast she walks and how energetic she is.

“Age don’t mean nothing to me,” Shuster said.

Shuster has been working there for 25 years after getting the job when she was a young 73.

“I really like the job. No effort for me,” she said.

What she loves even more than the job is feeling appreciated for everything she does.

“She can stay here as long as she’d like ... every day we have with her is such a blessing,” owner Nick Delligatti said.

A blessing Shuster never takes for granted. While she loves to dance, she also loves to sing.

“Just to come down here, she makes it. She makes McDonald's here,” customer Jenny Stewart said.
