WE REMEMBER: ‘Good Times’ Star Ja’Net DuBois Found Dead – She was 74

*Sadly, we must report on the demise of another Hollywood legend. One of the primary characters on “Good Times,” non-other than Ja’Net DuBois, was found dead earlier today, according to TMZ.

Of course, DuBois will always be remembered as the Evans family’s sassy neighbor Willona Woods on the classic ’70s TV series.

Her family says Miss DuBois died unexpectedly in her sleep overnight at her home in Glendale, CA.

As of this posting, it’s not clear who discovered her body Tuesday morning. Supposedly hadn’t complained of any specific ailments in the recent past, and she appeared to be in good health to those around her. She even attended a fan event in Hollywood a couple of weeks ago.

Here’s more via TMZ:

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.

She appeared in tons of movies over the years, including “I’m Gonna Git You Sucka”, “Tropic Thunder” and “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.”

Ja’Net’s acting career began on Broadway, where she was cast in a number of plays including “Golden Boy” with Sammy Davis Jr. and Louis Gossett Jr. — plus “A Raisin In The Sun.”

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