Jean T. Bryson of Pocomoke City, Maryland, passed away quietly in her sleep on Saturday, March 21, 2020. She was born in Cleveland, Ohio, on October 10, 1921, to the late Libera and Michael Tullio. In addition to her precious mother and father, she was preceded in death by her stepmother Mary, brother Mike Tullio, step-brothers John and Santo Zaffle, and her beloved husband of 68 years, Charles H.
