Nell Loree Bryson Poe passed away October 4, 2013. Born to Lonnie Granville Bryson and Nella B. Newlin Bryson on December 4, 1943, Nell grew up in Brady, Texas, the youngest of three children and the only girl. Nell graduated from Brady High School in 1962 and married Jerry Michael Poe in Brady, on May 29, 1964.
They settled in Alvin, Texas, to raise their two children, Dorena Loree Poe Moore and Gary Michael Poe. Nell spent most of her working career in customer service at Alvin State Bank and Chocolate Bayou Community Federal Credit Union. Once Jerry retired, they traveled, birding and visiting every county in Texas at least once. Family always came first and Nell and Jerry could be found at every event for their children and as many of their grandchildren’s events as they could attend.
Nell is preceded in death by her parents and her brother Gary Granville Bryson.
Nell is survived by her husband of 49 ½ years, Jerry; her children, Dorena (and husband William “WT” Moore) and Gary (and wife Jacqui Poe); her grandchildren, Rochelle Loree Finley, Sarah Su Zan Finley, Molly Urell-Poe, Tyler Michael Poe, and Kelsey Olivia Poe; her brother, Valton Jordan Bryson; and numerous nieces and nephews.
