25 Memorable Mothers

Posted by on May 13, 2012

Without mothers, we literally wouldn’t exist. Mothers give birth to us, change our diapers, make us peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with the crusts cut off, put Band-Aids on our boo boos, help us with our homework, proofread our college applications, and teach us to be functioning members of society. They constantly put our needs ahead of their own and love us no matter how many stupid mistakes we make or annoying things we do. Without them, we probably wouldn’t have made it to adulthood alive. So make sure to thank your mother today and let her know how much you love and appreciate her, because without her, you wouldn’t be here. In honor of Mother’s Day, here is a list of 25 memorable mothers.


Carol Brady (The Brady Bunch)

Here’s the story, of a lovely lady… You know the rest. No matter who broke a nose or lost a Kitty Karry-All doll, Mrs. Brady managed her blended family with gentleness and poise.


Clair Huxtable (The Cosby Show)

This mother of five balanced family life, a successful law career, and a rambunctious husband (Bill Cosby) while simultaneously breaking racial stereotypes of the time.


Roseanne Conner (Roseanne)

This outspoken matriarch led her Midwestern family while working outside the home, something never before seen on television. She portrayed the life of an American blue-collar mother and tackled provocative subjects through humor.


Juno MacGuff (Juno)

Who could forget Juno’s heartwarming story? Although she chose adoption for her baby, she survived teenage pregnancy and learned invaluable lessons about love, compassion, and the true meaning of motherhood.


Lorelai Gilmore (Gilmore Girls)

This spunky single mother gave birth to her daughter, Rory, at age 16, much to the chagrin of her wealthy parents. She ran away from home and settled in the quirky, small town of Stars Hollow, where she and Rory experienced no shortage of interesting characters, hilarious situations, or priceless life lessons.
