Tony Dow, His son Tony Dow TV Barbara Billingsley gave the perfect epitaph, called her “mom of the United States.”

And “NBC Nightly News” used “American Mom” to the title in its series of meetings of death today at age 94.

Billingsley will always be remembered for playing June Cleaver on “Leave It to Beaver”, which is 1957-63. The comedy began in CBS, then moved to ABC.

Billingsley plans to goodness, love and dignity of June, the housewife Wally (Tony Dow) and Theodore (Jerry Mathers), who was affectionately known as “beaver.” June was also the wife of support given by Ward (Hugh Beaumont, who died in 1982).

Billingsley wearing pearls, which was key to the character. Classy, stylish June was a pearl. In the capable hands of Billingsley, June was a stable, thoughtful, and that image will never go out of style.

Dow said today on CNN that Billingsley said the role was the best that can ever happen to her and she liked to be remembered for it. “As far as I’m concerned, has been an honor,” he once said.

He returned to play the role of June 1980 in the movie “Still the Beaver” and later two series, “Still the Beaver” on Disney Channel and “The New Leave It to Beaver” on WTBS. “The New Leave It to Beaver” was his last season at Universal Studios Florida. The race ended with the sudden bankruptcy of trustees of the series.

Billinglsey played June in other series like “Roseanne.” Billingsley also had guest roles on other series including “Murphy Brown”, “Empty Nest”, “The FBI”, “Morky & Mindy” and “The Love Boat.” Play the mother of the United States may have limited their career opportunities, but Billingsley made an uproarious cameo in the 1980 film “Airplane!” She played a passenger who spoke Jive. Who can forget that?

However, June Cleaver was the peak. When they are known as “mother of the United States,” must have done something right. Good night, Mrs. Cleaver.
