I just learned about the death of one of my favorite TV personalities while watching the nightly news. "Leave It To Beaver" ran from 1957-1963 and I honestly think I've seen every episode multiple times. Barbara Billingsley portrayed June Cleaver, the perfect stay at home mother of the time. I can still hear that theme song in my head. She handled all of Wally's and The Beaver's problems with such love and grace. RIP. Read more in The Wall Street Journal.
