The headshot photo revealed Stanis's deep affection for Ruby as she seemed to be holding her in a tight embrace while they smiled happily at the camera.

The lovely picture showed Stanis in a red round-neck top, matching red lipstick, and tousled black curls. Ruby Dee, on the other hand, wore a black boat neck blouse, a printed jacket, and a light pink scarf.

Stanis founded a non-profit organization called "Remembering The Good Times Foundation" to raise awareness about dementia.

There is no wonder the late iconic screenwriter Ruby Dee was loved by many as she enjoyed a tremendous acting career, having her first breakthrough in 1946.

She played some major roles in movies such as "A Raisin in The Sun," "The Jackie Robinson Story," and "Purlie Victorious," amongst many others.

Together with her husband, fellow actor, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee co-authored a humorous autobiography titled "With Ossie and Ruby: In This Life Together."

Although the late star lives on in people's hearts, she died at the age of 91, nine years after her partner, Davis, passed away in 2005.

Speaking of legendary icons, Stanis is best known for her role as Thelma Evans in the 1970s sitcom "Good Times," which featured other great actresses like Janet Dubois, Esther Rolle, and many others.

In addition to the show, which ran from 1974 to 1979 on CBS, Stanis founded a non-profit organization called "Remembering The Good Times Foundation" to raise awareness about dementia.

The Brownsville-born actress who was exposed to the arts, music, and dance as a young girl was able to tap into not just acting but also writing, and has released a long line of great books.
