HER SHOCKING SUDDEN DEATH

Unfortunately, two weeks later, she was found dead in her Glendale, California home, at 74-years-old, where her family reveals she died in her sleep unexpectedly. However, what's peculiar is that she had no known illnesses that she was battling prior to her sudden passing.

While people wondered if there was foul play that occurred, law enforcement officers revealed to TMZ that Ja'Net simply died of natural causes, and the family decided that there would be no autopsy despite the nature of her death.
