She was predeceased by her parents, her former husband, John B. Breymann III, her longtime partner, Donald B. Connors, and her brother, Donny Stark.
She is survived by her daughters, Meg Breymann, Kerry Breymann, Annabelle Keil (Rodrigo Corazon) and Rebecca Leiter (Mark); her grandchildren, Will Breymann (Bailey Sheran), Jackson Mansfield, Maggie Mansfield (Sam Perkins), Ben Keil and Peter Keil (Frances), Gabriel Leiter, Nicky Leiter and Noa Leiter; and her great-grandson, Pace Breymann.
Ferol graduated from Marquette University with a bachelor’s in journalism and from the Boston University School of Communications with her master’s. Her many volunteer activities in Marblehead included the Festival of Arts, the Historical Society and the Girl Scouts. She was a member of the North Shore Writers Group.
Breymann was an energetic and creative feminist. She inspired her daughters to love beauty, the outdoors, healthy eating, exercise and chocolate. “We thought she would live forever,” they said. “We would like to appreciate the staff of Williamstown Commons and Golden Living in Newton for their humor and kindness towards our mother. We are deeply grateful.”
A memorial Mass will be held on Saturday, June 3, 1 p.m., at Our Lady Star of the Sea Church in Marblehead. Memorial gifts may be sent to the causes of her favorite women, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama, or your favorite cause.
