Ann B. Davis, actress who played Alice on ‘Brady Bunch,’ dead at 88

Ann Branford Davis, the actress who played the sometimes wacky housekeeper who maintained law
and order on “The Brady Bunch,” has died on Sunday morning after falling at her San Antonio home.

Episcopal Bishop William C. Frey, a close friend of Davis, said she hit her head and suffered a subdural
hematoma during a rough fall in a bathroom on Saturday and never woke up, according to CNN.

An autopsy will be performed Monday.

Davis had been living with Frey and his wife, Barbara, since 1976. The 88-year-old was reportedly
healthy and even walked downstairs to say goodnight before going to bed.

Her path as an actress took charge after a performance of "Oklahoma" featuring her brother, Evan,
changed her ambitions to acting while attending University of Michigan as a pre-med student. She
graduated in 1948 with a B.A. in Theatre, according to the University of Michigan's website.

A decade before she became America’s TV housekeeper, Davis had another signature role as Charmaine
(Schultzy) Schultz on "The Bob Cummings Show" from 1955 to 1959. She won two best supporting actress
Emmys for that role, and was nominated four times.

But she is best known for her performance as Alice Nelson, an energetic, sometimes sarcastic and
ultra-competent maid, who kept the Brady family float during the sitcom's five-year run on the ABC network.

@Region Philbis,
Why was Ann living with Episcopal Bishop William C. Frey? Sounds suspious to me. I am a Brady expert if you haven't heard -- I need to investigate.

@Region Philbis,
In theory - she joined his Episcopal community.

who knows as they say she was very healthy and wham she falls and hits her head - no one else seems to think it is suspious.
