While perusing who died on this day (one of my daily rituals), I noticed that Barbara Billingsley who played June Cleaver on the iconic American TV series, Leave It To Beaver died on this date six years ago. So, in her honor, here’s some links for her and Leave It To Beaver below. And then there’s some information on what’s going to be happening this week here on MBIP! Enjoy!
