It is reported, DuBois was in such good spirits recently, and even made an appearance at a fan event in Hollywood weeks before her death.
Apart from her work on "Good Times," she was a singer and composed "The Jeffersons" theme song "Movin On Up." She also did voice-over work, which earned her two Emmys for her work on the "PJ's." Speaking to Andy Cohen in 2006 about singing the theme song, she revealed:
"I sang and wrote "The Jeffersons" theme! That was not a dream it was a promise. I promised my Mom I'd move out of Brooklyn to the East Side of Manhattan and that is that song."
It is reported, many of her former co-stars, including Janet Jackson, BernNadette Stanis, and executive producer Norman Lear shared heartfelt tributes in honor of DuBois.
