ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 9 (UPI) -- A U.S. poll indicates June Cleaver of TV's classic "Leave it to Beaver" is the mother U.S. citizens would most like to have.

The online Harris Interactive poll of 2,529 U.S. adults, conducted April 7-15, found most respondents chose June Cleaver as the TV character they most wished was their actual mother. Beaver and Wally's mother was best remembered for doing housework in a dress and pearls.

Claire Huxtable of "The Cosby Show" came in second in the poll followed by Carol Brady of "The Brady Bunch" and Marion "Mrs. C" Cunningham from "Happy Days," Harris reported Friday. Donna Stone of "The Donna Reed Show" completed the top five.

The poll also found 48 percent of respondents with living mothers said they plan to send cards to their matriarchs for Mother's Day, while 47 percent said they plan to buy presents for their moms and 29 percent said they will take their mothers out for a meal.
