Just saw on CNN that "Leave It To Beaver" mom Barbara Billinglsey has passed away at 94 years of age. I thought she was great as Beaver's mom and I loved in later years how she was unafraid to mock that image as when she appeared in the movie "Airplane!" translating jive, a very funny moment. She had a good run. But I will miss her. RIP Barbara Billingsley

God Bless her! She has made her mark on American Popular Culture that's for sure.

One of the quintessential Moms of television...don't we all wish we had her as a Mom?

RIP, Miss Billingsley, and thank you... :(

Also, RIP to Simon MacCorkindale, the British actor who appeared here in U.S. TV in the '80s on the short-lived Manimal, then as a regular on Falcon Crest for a couple of seasons and, after that, the syndicated series Counterstrike.

After she retired as an actress, she ran a very fine dinner restaurant in West Los Angeles, called Billingsley's (for about 30 years).
