My sincere sympathy to Bill and Pam and the duPont family also to Mrs Bloss as I just learned of her death today. Margaret was always so kind and dear to me, such a good relationship we had over the past 30 years, I will miss our phone conversations.

I grew up in Bellevue Manor Wilmington DE near William duPont 's Bellevue and benefited from visiting tennis greats such as Maureen Connolly. MRSduPont has been an inspiration and I was able to play on her indoor court until snow collapsed the roof. She was a great influence in DE tennis.
I am so incredibly sad. I did not know of this until today. She was my hero growing up. I looked up to her as the real thing. She has left a legacy to one of the greatest tennis players that ever played the game but more importantly a champion with incredible integrity and humility. I am so blessed to have known her and very grateful to have a hero that put her mark on my journey. God Bless to Margaret, family and those close to her, she will be missed.
May our Father in the Heavens please be upon the family during this trying time
We live in the home that was owned by her sister-in-law, Marion duPont Scott in Camden, South Carolina. Margaret visited here many times and played tennis across the street. It is an unusual coincidence that we picked up the New York Times and noticed the obituary. Our condolences go to William and Pamela in Florida. Please preserve any Camden related keepsakes that may still exist. Margaret was part of the rich tapestry that was Camden, South Carolina.

I am so sad to hear of Margaret's death she has always been such an inspiration to me and my personal life-God bless and be with you all-
It has been such an honor and privilege to know her as a friend...She was someone that anybody who has ever been lucky enough to meet would be amazed by her strength both as a woman and a sporting foe.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Margaret at this sad time. I never had the privilege of meeting Margaret in person but have visited with her over the phone several times over the years. I know the family has a marvelous

I am profoundly sad to hear of Margaret's death and I'll truly miss our conversations. She was a neighbor in El Paso and we had the privilege of sitting in her seats at Wimbledon. What an amazing career she had - an important piece of our beloved sport that can never be replaced.
Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Margaret Bloss and M. DuPont's family. She was a winner, both on and off the court, and it was a privilege knowing her. She was an active El Pasoan, who shared her love of tennis and of the city with all. She will be missed greatly. Love to all.
