Who was Tom Hanks deceased wife Samantha Lewes?

Born Susan Jane Dillingham on the 29th November 1952, in San Diego, California USA, she was an actress, but she will be best remembered as the first wife of the Academy Award winner Tom Hanks, and mother of their two children, Elizabeth Hanks, and Colin Hanks. She passed away in 2002.

Early Life, Education, and Family

Unfortunately, no information is available about Samantha’s life before she met Tom Hanks. She and Tom met in Skyline High School, and after she matriculated, Samantha and Tom enrolled at Sacramento State University, where they started dating.

Career Beginnings

Samantha’s career wasn’t quite renowned and worldly famous, but still, she made a couple of notable appearances, including in the TV series “Bosom Buddies” (1981), and in the television film “Mr. Success”. However, she became more focused on her family and other private matters, which effectively put the end to her career.

Life Behind the Scenes

Samantha gave birth to her first child in 1977 when Tom was 22 years old, and she was 25; the following year, the couple exchanged their wedding vows. Samantha gave birth to their second child, Elizabeth Ann Hanks, in 1982, and were married until 1987, when they decided to divorce, apparently because of Hanks’ affair with actress Rita Wilson.

Life After Divorce

Following her separation from Tom, Samantha remained out of the public eye until she was diagnosed with bone cancer; her ex-husband Tom paid for whatever treatment was available, but unfortunately, there was no permanent help for Samantha, and she succumbed to the disease on the 12th March 2002. She was living in Sacramento, California, USA.

Samantha Lewes’ Children



Both Colin and Elizabeth followed their parents’ footsteps into the entertainment world, with Colin becoming more successful; he won the Young Hollywood Award, just a couple of months after his mother’s death in 2002, and he has most recently earned a Golden Globe Award- nomination for his work in the TV series “Fargo”. On the other hand, Elizabeth featured in only a couple of films and TV series and didn’t have much success.
