From the age of 13 years all three went to Allen Road Youth Club where past antics which included visiting the chip shop for scraps and rustling sweet papers in church.
The trio drifted apart after Margaret moved to Cambridge and Lesley followed her late husband to America, where she now works as a secretary in a school in Illinois.
But they were reunited again thanks to the Friends Reunited website.
Lesley is hoping to return to Ipswich to live and the trio would love to catch up with old school or youth club friends.
