'Bosom Buddies' Actress Sperber Dies

(Posted December 2, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

Even if you didn't quite know her name, if you were a teenager between, say, 1978 and 1987 you probably know Wendie Jo Sperber's face.

Sperber, the actress who played the confidante to "Bosom Buddies" Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari and Michael J. Fox's sister in "Back to the Future," died Tuesday (Nov. 29) after a long fight with breast cancer. She was 47.

After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997, Sperber founded a support network called weSPARK, which offers free counseling and other services to cancer patients and their families.

"The memory of Wendie Jo is that of a walking inspiration," Hanks says in a statement. "She met the challenges of her illness with love, joy and altruism. We are going to miss her as surely as we are all better for knowing her."
