The birthday girl for June 25 is actress June Lockhart.
While today’s audience may not be familiar with the work of June Lockhart, anyone over the age of fifty should know her quite well. During the golden age of television, Lockhart was the archetypal mother figure on a couple of classic series. With almost three-hundred episodes of “Lassie” and “Lost in Space” under her belt, the actress was as famous as any other maternal figure on TV. Moving onto “Petticoat Junction” as Dr. Janet Craig, Lockhart continued to dominate the medium in another matriarchal role.
Of course, that’s what Cancers do best. Or at least the best of them do that . . .
