Bernadette Peters' has been in numerous movies and stage musicals (and won a few Tonys) but I'll always remember her for her coronet playing abilities in The Jerk and as the voice of Rita on Animaniacs. Unfortunately, her husband, Michael Wittenberg, was killed along with three other people in a helicopter crash while on a business trip recently. The couple have been married since 1996, and Wittenberg was 43 at the time of the crash.
