SOUTHFIELD, Mich., April 23 (UPI) -- An 80-year-old Michigan woman has been working at the same KFC location for over 50 years, long enough that she was once even able to meet “The Colonel,” Harland Sanders.

Marylou Ausborne describes Colonel Sanders as “a wonderful man” who was “just great.”

She’s been working at the fast food chain’s location in Southfield for 52 years and her daughter, Marian, has been there for 34 years.

"There's no such thing as retirement," Ausborne told WJBK. "What would I do at home? It's great here. I went to school in Kentucky for Kentucky Fried Chicken. I like being here. I like the people. I like the customers and it’s a very good job.”

The franchise recognized Ausborne’s extended service with a plaque and dinner out at a local restaurant that doesn’t serve original or extra crispy recipe chicken.

“She’s a good employee and a nice person,” franchise manager Grant White told ABC News.
