I always loved how she wore a smart dress with pearls and earrings along with high heels to do housework. I wonder what impression she gave to people in other countries about American life in the 50's & 60's?

I really did like her for her sweetness and leaving all decisions up to her husband.

BTW, her two sons operate Billingsley's Steak house in LA.

Dirtiest words ever said on American television:

"Ward, you were a little hard on the Beaver last night"

Rest in peace, Barbara Billingsly.

That is soooo bad !!!   

In all seriousness, she was an asset to the entertainment industry and will be missed greatly. Now it will give me yet another excuse to review "Airplane!"
