CLARKSBURG -

A local McDonald's celebrated a milestone for one worker on Thursday.

The McDonald's located on Emily Drive in Clarksburg held a party for a long time employee who is retiring after 41 years working at McDonald's.

Helen Davis said that it was a bitter sweet moment retiring from a job that has been a part of her life for so long.

She clocked out on Thursday at 1 p.m. for the very last time.

Davis said that it's the people she'll miss the most.

"It's all the people that I'm going to miss. All the people that I work with and all of the customers, and it's going to be hard leaving them. I met my husband at McDonald's, and it's just a wonderful place," said Davis.

Davis said her daughter also once worked at McDonald's, so it's a family affair.

On Thursday employees, managers, family, and friends joined together to have cake, give Davis gifts, and give her their well wishes.

Davis said now that she's retired she'll take some time to relax and volunteer.
