Barbara Billingsley dies: Billingsley, June Cleaver on 'Leave It to Beaver,' dies - latimes.com: "Barbara Billingsley, who played June Cleaver, the quintessential 1950s sitcom mom on 'Leave It to Beaver,' and later did a memorable send-up of her white-bread image playing the 'jive-talking' passenger in the hit comedy 'Airplane!,' has died. She was 94.

Billingsley, who played small parts in B movies and appeared on television before achieving sitcom immortality, died Saturday at her home in Santa Monica of the rheumatoid disorder polymyalgia, said publicist Judy Twersky.

'Ward, I'm worried about the Beaver,' Billingsley's June would say to her TV husband, played by Hugh Beaumont, on 'Leave It to Beaver.'"
