Deb got interested in fencing somehow and we took classes at the Salle Dupree', which occupied a second-floor ballroom in an old hotel in downtown Moline.  This was probably in the fall of our Junior year.  Deb's younger brother was a wrestler, and he was a good fencer.  But Deb was sly.  One Saturday during a practice bout, she stopped at just the right place and moment, and pointed at the ceiling with her free hand.  He glanced up and she promptly hit him!  He was pretty annoyed at having fallen for a cartoon show trick. But this wasn't enough for Deb; she made sure the story got around to his teammates on Monday. 

I'm sure sorry to know that Deb has passed away.
