Obituary for Betty M Born (March, 1931 – July 9, 2020)

Betty Born, 89 of Atlanta died peacefully at home. She was loved by many. It was always clear what was important to Betty: family, friends, home, church and music.

She was married to her sweetheart, Robert (Bob) Born (deceased) for 64 years. Their early years saw him through law school. By the time he graduated, they had two daughters. As time went on, they added a third daughter to their family. Later in life, they enjoyed traveling and time spent with friends and family.

Home and hearth were always of great importance to Betty. She enjoyed being a homemaker and took great pride in the homes they were able to build through the years. Her keen eye for design ensured each was even more lovely than the one before. She had an affinity for Williamsburg and appreciated early American design.

Her church and her relationship with God were also very important to her. For many years she attended Kirkwood Baptist Church – later, Rainbow Park Baptist Church. She also was very active at Johns Creek Baptist Church.

She might have been small in stature, but she had a large, beautiful singing voice. Betty always sang in the church choir. Being a soprano soloist, Handel’s Messiah was one of her favorite musical works.

She was fortunate to have six grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. They all loved “Grandmother/Lala.” She was the last remaining sibling of her (and Bob’s) family and as such, was especially loved by her many nieces and nephews. “Aunt Betty” loved them dearly.

She always said, “You can never have too many friends.” Indeed, she had many, many friends – some kept close from childhood. She loved entertaining in her home and enjoyed cooking. She loved making banana bread and other treats for neighbors and giving to others. She enjoyed her Sunday School class.

Betty is survived by her three daughters, Jenny Montgomery (Joe Glaze), Mary Beth Floyd, and Amy Shadmehry (Nemat.) She is also survived by her grandchildren, Matthew Nielsen, Ben Nielsen (Erin), Sarah Price (Lea), Mali Shadmehry, Razi Shadmehry, and Cameron Shadmehry. Her great grandchildren are Emma, Jake, Abby, Lily, and Nace Nielsen, and Alice and Billie Price.

The family wishes to thank the wonderful staff at Belmont Village Senior Living in Johns Creek for the loving care they provided Betty. A graveside service will be held for immediate family. A. S. Turner & Sons, North Decatur Road, will manage the burial arrangements.
