I love Mrs. Weasley (Harry Potter) because while she's kinda snarky and hard-nosed, she loves. She loves her husband, kids, and Harry and Hermione. She's strong and resourceful, and not much throws her.
I really like Mrs. Weasley from Harry Potter. I mean, honestly, she does it all. She's a sweetheart, she'd do anything for her kids, she raises and survives Fred and George, and she can cast a mean spell when she needs to. What else could you want in a mom?
It's hard not to answer Mrs. Weasley, since she's my particular aspiration, but as far as pure admirable qualities go, no one can beat Marmee from LITTLE WOMEN.
Lily Potter. She sacrificed herself for her baby son and stopped a major villain in the process.
Molly Weasley from the Harry Potter series, because she is both nurturing and fierce when it comes to taking care of her family and loved ones.
Bethany A. Jennings
Mrs. Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. I mean, really. She's hilarious. And I totally get her obsession with officers. ;)
Nia Wingfeather from The Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson
One of my favorite book moms was Mrs Murray from Madeleine L’Engles Time Quintet series.
"Professor MacGonagal. She's tough and compassionate and always stands up for her students when it counts.
I know she's not an actual mom, but she acts like one, and don't you wish she was?"

Sally from Beginnings: Family Heritage by Andrew M. Ferrell. I just love how involved and loving she is. It comes across as a normal family setting (single mom, dad died, but still, pretty normal), which is not the usual trope for young adult stuff.
Sharra Brightstar from Marcha Fox's Star Trails Tetralogy is so loving and loyal to her family, even though they've been pulled light years apart with little hope of being reunited. She grows so much in strength by the end of the fourth book, it makes me want to be like her!
Katy Huth Jones
Susan Mitchell from The Sword of Lyric series (Sharon Hinck) She's the main character and she's willing to do anything in a new alternity to save her son.
