Rest in Peace, June Cleaver

Barbara Billingsley, the actress who played my idol June Cleaver, died today at age 94.  People say she embraced being called America’s Mom and always had a nice thing to say. Since I make fun of June Cleaver in my act, fawning that I want to be her because repression would be a vacation, I always wanted to meet her. Instead, I bow my scruffy head to a class act, in real life and television history.

  1. Jacki,

    Your words are beautiful. I could not have said it better.

    Being that I was a “latch key child” [remember that term?] I dreamed of having a mom like her at home, and I thank you for this post.
