Alice Even Jensen and Irene Roeske Cook have been friends for 95 years. They met in first grade at St. Gregory's Catholic School in Chicago.

Irene and Alice were raised in the Edgewater District of Chicago in the 1910's until they each got married.

They maintain their friendship with weekly telephone calls and still see each other a couple of times a year.
