BERNNADETTE STANIS REMEMBERS HER FONDEST MEMORY OF JA'NET DUBOIS
If there's anything that BernNadette Stanis will remember of her good friend, it's her dedication and her positive outlook on everything. Aside from acknowledging the many memories they had on 'Good Times,' she said her fondest memory was when she found Ja'Net writing a song.
"There were many, but one was when she was writing a song, and I went to her and asked what she was doing, and she said 'I'm writing a song [...] for 'The Jeffersons."
True enough, DuBois ended up getting chosen, and her song "Movin' On Up" became the theme song of "The Jeffersons" which was a sitcom that aired from 1975 to 1985.
JA'NET'S SHOCKING DEATH
Ja'Net DuBois was found dead in her home at Glendale, California, on Tuesday. She was 74-years-old, and her death came as a shock to many, especially those she's worked with in the past.
Her death came unexpected, as she appeared in good health in the past couple of weeks, even attending the "2020 The Hollywood Show" with co-stars Jimmie Walker, Johnny Brown, Ralph Carter, and BernNadette Stanis.
REMEMBERING JA'NET'S LIFE
Aside from "Good Times" and having her song on "The Jeffersons," she went on to win two Emmy Awards for her voice-over role on Eddie Murphy's "The PJs," which aired from 1999 to 2001.
Ja'Net is remembered by fans as a talented actress and singer, but more than that, she is remembered as a good friend, a mentor, and a loving family member. The DuBois family has yet to release a statement on her sudden death, opting to mourn silently for now.

I am so very saddened to hear my longtime friend Ja’Net DuBois has passed away. I saw first hand how she broke stereotypes and changed the landscape for Black women in entertainment. I’m grateful in recent years I had a chance to see her and create more lasting memories. I pray for comfort for all her family and friends. Thank you Ja’Net, I’ll miss you. 🖤
DuBois is now reunited with her son Raj in heaven, losing him to cancer when he was only 36-years-old. May they Rest In Peace.
