Barbara Billingsley

June Cleaver, "Leave It to Beaver"

Being one of TV's all time favorite moms has kept Barbara Billingsley busy over the years. After playing June Cleaver on "Leave It to Beaver," Billingsley went into semi-retirement, opting to concentrate on raising her two sons and traveling with her husband. In the early '80s, a resurgence in "Beaver" nostalgia brought Billingsley back to acting and special appearances. Aside from the 1997 big-screen "Beaver" and various reunions, she's guested on "Murphy Brown," "Roseanne," and just about every tribute to TV moms ever made.
