Barbara Billingsley, Dead at 94

In MemoriumBarbara Billingsley was 94. She 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."

I enjoyed her performance in Airplane.

My brother Steve had Barbara Billingsley in The Dead Pool, drafted in September 2000. This gave him another 6 points, but he's still in last place.
