Actress Ann B. Davis, best known for her iconic performance as the housekeeper Alice Nelson on The Brady Bunch, passed away on Sunday, June 1, at the age of 88.
A close friend of Davis confirmed the news of her passing to Entertainment Tonight. The actress died in a hospital in San Antonio, Texas at approximately 7:30 a.m. on Sunday. According to CNN, Davis slipped and fell in the bathroom at her home and hit her head, causing serious trauma. She was rushed to the hospital but reportedly suffered a subdural hematoma, and never regained consciousness.
The TV legend's career in began when she played Charmaine Shultz on the NBC sitcom The Bob Cummings Show in 1955. For the role, she received four Emmy nominations, winning twice, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960, one year after the show ended.
Nine years later came another part that would cement Davis' name in TV history. In 1969, a man with three sons married a woman with three daughters on the ABC sitcom The Brady Bunch. Davis was cast as Alice, the housekeeper for the Bunch, and over the five seasons and 117 episodes that aired, Alice became one of the most popular and beloved characters on television.
Since The Brady Bunch ended its run in 1974, Davis has reprised her role numerous times in made-for-TV movie specials and for several Brady Bunch reunion specials. She even appeared in a cameo in the 1995 feature film.
Davis continued to act throughout her life, performing in a number of plays including the stage productions of Arsenic And Old Lace and Crazy For You.
