Barbara Billingsley, the 94-year-old Billingsley, who played June Cleaver in the 1950s-1960s television series, died Saturday after a long illness at her home in Santa Monica.
This is sad news in our home, because Selah has fallen in love with Leave it to Beaver, the television series. It is a special thing to know that some of those older shows still carry a great deal of value in American households, especially Christian ones.
We talk mainly about Christian books and movies here, rarely television shows. In honor of June Cleaver, who I think was a great example of humility and patience on air. What did you love about the show?
And on the controversial front? Did you ever feel like you could never live up to June Cleaver? And did you crack up seeing her talk jive in Airplane, the movie?
