Margaret had been involved with Peacehaven & Telscombe FC for more than 40 years. She carried out many roles for the club including treasurer, secretary, kitchen and kit washing.
Club chair Sue Norwood said: “Today is a very sad day for Peacehaven & Telscombe FC and for everyone who knew Margaret.” “She was a wonderful and strong lady who was always by the side of her husband Jim and all of her family throughout the 40 plus years she was part of our football club.”
Mrs Norwood continued: “Whenever she was at the club prior to be becoming unwell you would always see her helping or doing something. She was always there to keep us going and progressing forward.” “I personally will deeply miss Margaret. She was always there for me to have a chat with or give me support whenever I needed it.”
“On behalf of everyone at the football club, I want to take this opportunity to send my heartfelt love to Jim, Pete, David, Jason, Elaine, Shelley and all their grandchildren.”
Details of Margaret’s funeral will be announced in due course.
