|Bernard Black's mother|
The mother of Bernard Black is probably Irish. Bernard had not seen her for years, so much so that he thought she was dead, however, he called her once in 2000 to try and distract himself from doing his tax returns. It is highly suggested that Bernard has not a good relationship with his mother, as he does not know her first or maiden name and can only bear talking to her for a few seconds.
Fran Katzenjammer told her and her husband that Bernard's then-fiance, Emma, had faked her own death in order not to marry him. Bernard has also said that his father and mother get up at 5:00 am so they can have a nap at lunchtime, and also revealed that they both enjoy gardening. However, he later admitted that he has little contact with both parents.
