Mary Wickes (June 13, 1910 – October 22, 1995) was an American film and television character actress. For Disney, she served as the live-action model for Cruella De Vil in 101 Dalmatians and lent her voice to Laverne in The Hunchback of Notre Dame. She is probably best known for her role as Sister Mary Lazarus in Sister Act and Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit with Whoopi Goldberg. She also played Clara in Napoleon and Samantha and Miss Wigginton in Snowball Express. Laverne was the last role that she performed before she died from complications from surgery on October 10, 1995. She didn't complete all her lines for it, and Jane Withers was brought in to record the rest of them and provided the voice of Laverne in The Hunchback of Notre Dame II, which was released in 2002, 7 years after Wickes' death.
