Beloved actress Ja’net Dubois died as a result of cardiac arrest, coroners have ruled.
“The Good Times” star passed away in her sleep last month, and now California authorities have listed the heart problem as her immediate cause of death.
However, they also discovered she had been silently suffering for years with peripheral vascular disease, a blood circulation disorder, and chronic kidney disease, even though her family members insisted she had no known illnesses prior to her loss.
Hypertension was also noted as a contributing factor in her unexpected demise, according to a death certificate obtained by TMZ.
The document reveals the 74 year old’s remains have since been cremated, with some of her ashes scattered at sea.
