Murine Chambers started working at the Dairy Queen in Crandall, Texas in 1983 located just east of Dallas on US-175. Whit Wolman, Chief Operating Officer and Managing Partner of Crestwood Foods, owner of the Dairy Queen in Crandall, recently celebrated Ms. Chambers at the Dairy Queen and presented with a plaque to honor her 40 years of service. 

“I don’t plan on leaving yet!” says Ms. Chambers, a grandmother to nine. 

Her son Chris said his mom is loved by everyone in town and customers ask for her when they visit the Dairy Queen. “I remember when she used to walk to work every day. During my summer break, I would walk her halfway to work and when it was time for her to get off work, I would be there to walk with her back home. She would have a cup of that good Dairy Queen (soft serve) with cookies in it. I’ve seen her struggles, and she just always keeps pushing.”
