Breon was raised in Vancouver, Wash., and graduated from Vancouver High School in 1944. She married Loyd Molyneux on April 1, 1945, in Vancouver.

The Breons rode for three years for the Dayville Grazing Association in the Murderers Creek area, then they moved to Crook County and lived on the 96 Ranch for 25 years. They retired to the Burns area in 2003.
Breon enjoyed talking with family and friends. She also loved to see what Dick Jenkins had new out at the Round Barn Visitor Center. She liked visiting friends at the Narrows, and when she was not able to get around as well, she enjoyed watching the many people at McDonald’s.
Breon loved the memories of the real estate deals she and Marcheta Roser had completed over the last few years. She enjoyed her home and showing off the blue pine cabinets that Tex Ward built for her and Ben. One of the things she cherished was all the friendly people of Harney County and the views of the wide open spaces. She commented often that they should have moved here 25 years ago.
