"I'm grateful in recent years I had a chance to see her and create more lasting memories". Here are 5 things you probably didn't know about the late great Ja'net Dubois.
TMZ previously reported that she was simply found dead in her home bedroom, after having passed away in her sleep.
Ja'net might be most famous for "Good Times", but she also composed and sang the theme song, "Movin' On Up", for "The Jeffersons" - so, she should also be remembered for her voice.

DuBois' career started in theater, where she appeared in Broadway productions of "Golden Boy" and "A Raisin in the Sun", according to a biography on her website.
"In addition to Good Times, DuBois played Ma Bell in Keenen Ivory Wayans" 1989 blaxploitation film parody I'm Gonna Git You Sucka. "I loved and will miss her dearly", Holly Robinson Peete tweeted alongside a series of photos, which includes a shot of her with Dubois.

She also won two Emmy awards for her voice-over work on "The PJs".
