In memory of
Alfred William "Bill" Born
Alfred William "Bill" Born, loving father, faithful husband, kindly uncle and caring brother-in-law, passed away Thursday, August 26, 2020. He was a history buff who loved fishing, documentaries, and his sister-in-law's pecan pie. A Navy veteran who claimed that he didn't actually know how to swim, his experience with Hurricane Katrina led to a long-running joke in the family about his "seeing eye cat" Princess. He enjoyed coffee with friends, traveling with his wife, and evenings spent on his patio chatting with people in the neighborhood. He was a man's man who preferred coveralls to suits, Middendorf's thin-cut catfish, and debating with anyone about anything. Bill was preceded in death by his wife, the late Josephine "JoAnn" Courtney, by his son, the late Michael Louis Born, and by his parents, the late Elizabeth Zimmerman Born and the late Alfred Born. A gathering of family and friends will be held at St. Bernard Memorial Funeral Home, 701 W. Virtue Street in Chalmette, on Saturday, September 19, 2020, from 9:00 am – 10:30 am. A memorial service will begin at 10:30 am. A private interment will take place at a later time. Those wishing to make a gesture, in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice in Joann or Bill's name and prayers for the deceased are appreciated.
