Where Are They Now? The Cast of “Good Times”

- By

Esther Rolle

Where would the Evans family have been without Florida? The matriarch of the family, she took no mess, but was always a supportive ear for her children’s issues. The widow was the backbone of her family, and she also had many memorable lines and moments on the show: *Drops bowl* “Damn, damn, damn DAMN!!!!” Once the show ended, Rolle released an album, The Garden of My Mind, did a little bit of psychic work (side eye), and appeared in a great deal of movies. That includes How to Make an America Quilt, Rosewood and Down in the Delta. Rolle passed away in 1998 due to complications from diabetes. She was 78.
