92-year-old still ‘Lovin’ it’ at McDonald’s

The Sun newspaper in Great Britain ran a story earlier this month that claimed an 88-year-old North Wales man could be the world's oldest McDonald's employee.

But, KCCI found a woman working at the Story City McDonald's who trumps that.

Sara Dappen was born in 1920. She even showed KCCI her driver’s license.

Dappen has been working at the Story City McDonald's for five years.

She cleans tables and keeps the place tidy, but she said her favorite thing to do is talk to customers.

"I thought it was more interesting to keep walking around here than to be walking up and down the street, and this keeps me from sitting,” said Dappen.

"I think it's crazy and she's going to last to be like 110 working at McDonald's," said McDonald’s department manager Elizabeth Holmes.

Workers said Dappen has taught them to have better manners and customers said they admire her and feel inspired.
