It is with much sadness that the club wishes to announce the passing of Life Member and long-time Nerang Eagles identity, Edith Anne Jackson.
We are informed that Anne passed away in the early evening last night and we wish to pass on our sincerest and deepest sympathies and support to Leigh and the entire Jackson family and those who were close to Anne.
Anne served the club enormously during the 1980s holding various committee roles and as a volunteer and contributed to the shaping of the club we have here today.
Anne joined the executive committee in 1979 holding roles as —
- Treasurer – 1979/80/84/85/88/90
- Junior Vice President – 1983
- Assistant Treasurer – 1986/89
- Finance Director – 1987
Anne also founded the Nerang Players’ Records — an ongoing database keeping track of every single player and their years of service/games at the club — before passing those records to current President Fred Stone in the late 1990s. She was made Nerang Soccer Club life member in 1991. Leigh Jackson joined the club in the late 1970s and served on the committee in various roles beside Anne over the years.
The club would like to remember and celebrate Anne’s great contributions to the Eagles, and the lifelong relationships and friendships she leaves behind in her passing. We will announce any funeral or memorial event details as they come to hand and in accordance with the family’s wishes.
