    Barbara Billingsley of 'Leave it to Beaver' fame dies - CNN.com Barbara Billingsley, who wore a classy pearl necklace and dispensed pearls of wisdom as America's quintessential mom on "Leave it to Beaver," has died at age 94, a family spokeswoman said Saturday.

    The actress passed away at 2 a.m. (5 a.m. ET) Saturday at her home in Santa Monica, California, after a long illness, spokeswoman Judy Twersky said. A private memorial is being planned.

    "America's favorite mother is now gone. I feel very fortunate to have been her 'son,' " actor Tony Dow, who played Wally Cleaver, said in a statement. "We were wonderful friends and I will miss her very much. My deepest sympathies to her sons, Glenn and Drew, and her entire family."

    Actor Jerry Mathers, who played Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver, spoke of Billingsley's talent during a 2000 appearance on CNN's "Larry King Live."


    Even though she was always known as the Beavers mom......Her best role was in "Airplane"...."I can speak Jive"

    Yepp. That was pre*murka.
    Back when there were family values and honesty, to a point.
    That was long before you had the likes of Charlie Sheen-Carlos Esteves,bleating innuendos about having a finger shoved up his ass while getting head, on daytime TV.
    Hey. @ $2 million per show those whores will do whatever they are told to do.

    LOS ANGELES—Barbara Billingsley, who gained supermom status for her gentle portrayal of June Cleaver, the warm, supportive mother of a pair of precocious boys in "Leave it to Beaver," died Saturday. She was 94.

    Billingsley, who had suffered from a rheumatoid disease, died at her home in Santa Monica, said family spokeswoman Judy Twersky.

    The first time any sexual double entendre was uttered on television?

    "Gee Ward, I think you were a little hard on the Beaver..."
