REMEMBERING HER COLORFUL CAREER

Aside from her stint on "Good Times," she also co-wrote and sang "Movin' On Up," which was used as the theme song for the sitcom "The Jeffersons," which aired from 1975 to 1985. Later on, she would gain two Emmy Awards for her voiceover work in "The PJs," which aired from 1999 to 2001.

The actress joins her son Raj in heaven, after losing him to cancer when he was only 36-years-old. May they Rest In Peace.
