I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Margaret,such a Legacy,Psalms 90:10, speaks of it as special mightiest,my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.

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.

Sincere condolences to family and loved ones. May the God of all comfort be with you.

We had the great honor of spending some time with Ms. duPont when photographing and interviewing her when she was inducted into the USTA Southwest Section Hall of Fame. She found a special place in our hearts immediately. What an absolutely delightful afternoon, rich with memories.
Our sincerest condolensces to the duPont and Bloss families. The tennis world and El Paso community have lost a legend; she will be missed dearly by all who knew her.
