Tributes have flooded in for an Eastbourne physiotherapist who died suddenly at her home earlier this month.

Thirty-six-year-old Zoey Greenwood was a physio at Eastbourne Town Football Club and her death has left the club and her many friends locally, devastated.

The mother of four lived in Netherfield and worked as a lecturer at Sussex Coast College in Hastings but travelled to Eastbourne regularly to work with the teams at Eastbourne Town.

Her best friend Vicky McFarlane said this week Zoey touched the lives of everyone she met.

“Zoey left an imprint in their hearts from management at the club and committee members to supporters and players.”

Zoey’s mother Dee Reboe said, “Our lives just won’t be the same without her. She was extraordinary, caring, kind, funny, the greatest mum, daughter, sister, friend and more.

“She was our beautiful, caring, talented, funny, and most loving daughter Zoey. She touched the hearts of everyone she met, she truly did.

“A mum, daughter, sister to Danny and Des, grand daughter and niece. It’s so very sad, taken so young and as yet the cause being inconclusive, heartbreaking.”

Eastbourne Town Ladies Team manager Emma Parslow said, “Although Zoey only supported the ladies team where needed, her time and effort that she gave to the squad will never be forgotten.

“Passionate and exceptional at her job, she never said no if help was needed.

“A fantastic professional and to me a true friend. She will be missed and never forgotten.”

Zoey’s funeral will be held at Hastings Crematorium on Friday September 4 at 11.45am and women attending are being asked to wear pink and men in blue as a celebration of her life.
