RIP June Cleaver


On Saturday, October 16 Barbara Billingsly passed away taking with her the mom of all moms, June Cleaver.


June Cleaver set the standard for all moms...heels and pearls while cooking dinner, raising her sons without raising her voice and I bet she concocted a mean martini.


Always there for her husband and sons she tackled life with poise, grace and class.


This Friday please join Lily Lemontree and me when we wear our pearls to honour the inspirational, standard setting June Cleaver.

I will be adding a McLinky to my Friday post so we can all join in and share our love of this amazing lady.

Many, many thanks to Pink Preppy Lilly Lover who made the button for us!  Please feel free to take it and add it to your own blog to spread the word.


Have a fabulous day!

Great idea! We received a couple of seasons of "Leave It to Beaver" as gifts one Christmas, and my children, ages 11, 14, and 18, all enjoy watching from time to time. I will definitely wear my pearls!

I'm plunkin' in my Aunt Evelyn's pearl earrings. I fear the cows would laugh if I were spotted wearin' the 'strand' workin' 'round the Ponderosa.

I felt so sad when I heard the news, like I'd lost an Aunt. I never ever missed 'The Beve' as a young chicklett. :o)

Ya'll have a beautifully blessed day remembering this lovely lady!!!

I remember watching "Leave it to Beaver" as a kid. I thought June Cleaver was the BEST mom in the world! I was sad to hear about her passing, but happy to hear she lived such a long life.

Great way to honor Mrs. Cleaver. Love it! :)

She was such a great TV mom too.
