Leave It To Beaver Mom Dead At 94

Barbara Billingsley, who embodied the television mom in the classic family show Leave It to Beaver , which aired from 1957-63, has died at the age of 94. Embedded in the minds of her audience as June Cleaver, the perfect American matriarch, she had difficulty finding work after the show was canceled and went 17 years before her startling reappearance as the elderly passenger who could "talk jive" in the 1980 movie Airplane! She had a role in the 1997 film version of Leave It to Beaver as the character "Aunt Martha."
