3.Hayate's mom from Hayate no Gotoku!4.Precia Testarossa
and many more.
You probably noticed that the 'good mothers' usually already dead in the anime. Some of them only appear during flashback. For example, Juri Kuran who died 10 years prior to the anime/manga Vampire Knight. Also, in Fullmetal Alchemist, Trisha Elric's death becomes the motivation for her children to learn more about alchemy so that they could bring her back to life, which eventually lead them to their journey after unsuccessful transmutation attempt. Nevertheless, today, I'm going to talk about sacrifices made by mother (in anime) to keep their children alive.
Juri Kuran from Vampire Knight
Juri is the mother of Yuuki and Kaname and is the sister of Haruka and Rido. As a pureblood vampire, Juri live for almost 3000 years before she died. She married her brother Haruka (a custom that is common for pureblood vampire to intermarry within siblings). She is a good mother and wife. She has cheerful and gentle personalities.10 years before the story started, she sacrificed herself in order to save her only daughter from having the same fate as the other pureblood whose blood is always being misused by the senior council of vampire. She put a spell on Yuuki which sealed her vampire side and turn her into normal human. However, this come with a great sacrifice for Juri would have been dead after completing the spell.

Juri always wished for her child to have a happy life as a human. Her last words is for Yuuki to not be angry with her for sacrificing herself and sealing Yuuki's memories and life as a vampire.
Masaki Kurosaki from Bleach
Masaki is the mother of main protagonist, Kurosaki Ichigo. She is also the mother of Yuzu and Karin, and dear wife of Isshin Kurosaki. She is a caring, gentle and lovely mother. Tatsuki stated that whenever Ichigo saw his mother, he would give her a big smile, even if he was crying before. Masaki died while trying to save Ichigo from running to river bank. Ichigo at that time, saw a hollow that masked itself as a girl. Unable to identify a living person and a soul, Ichigo run towards the river bank to save the girl. Masaki go after Ichigo and this leads to her dead when the hollow, Grad Fisher, having more interest in killing woman, killed her instead.
