LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actress Barbara
Billingsley, who played the quintessential suburban American
mom on the 1950s television comedy "Leave It to Beaver," died
Saturday at age 94.
A spokesman for the Santa Monica, California, care facility
where Billingsley died said the actress, who had a memorable
cameo as a jive-talking elderly passenger in the comedy film
"Airplane!" had been in poor health in recent years.
