this is probably belated but I just saw on google that actress Gloria Henry, jay north's mother on dennis the menace was dead.

heck, I thought she was still alive. she is my favorite TV mom of all time. 

I read how once in an exec's office unwanted advances were made and she rebuffed them because of her southern upbringing.

she was so dam nice and completely believable as Alice Mitchell.

Yeah, caught the tribute to her on MeTV the other day.  Bummed me out too.  As a fan of the comic strip, I sho' 'nuff became a fan of the TV show, and had a huge crush on her as well.  

I just know she's resting in peace.  She wouldn't have it any other way.

I never saw her play any other character, but she was a great TV wife and mom. I'm sure I wasn't the only kid who mistook her for Janet Leigh.

I wonder if the exec was Harry Cohn. She was a Columbia Pictures contractee in the late 40s and early 50s, before she started doing television work.

I've been watching reruns of "Dennis The Menace" on Antenna TV and find many of its episodes hilarious. I especially like the first Mr. Wilson (Joseph Kearns). He had a great rapport with Dennis. I also liked Gloria Henry as his Mom. She had a warmth and loving nature. I never cared for Barbara Billingsley. I thought she was cold and very formal with Beaver and Wally. She lacked the warmth that Gloria Henry displayed. Even though she was 98 and I'm sure led a full life it was still sad to hear that Gloria Henry had died.
