Ann B. Davis, who played the lovable housekeeper Alice on "The Brady Bunch," died Sunday morning. She was 88.
Her agent, Robert Malcolm, said that she fell in the bathroom and became comatose. She died at about 8:30 a.m. Sunday at a hospital in San Antonio, where she had lived with a minister friend and his wife.
Davis hadn't worked in several years, Malcolm said, and she had been using a walker. He last spoke with her on her birthday, May 3.
"She was a really nice, a really lovely woman," Malcolm said.
Davis, who won two Emmys for her role as a quick-witted secretary on the 1950s sitcom “The Bob Cummings Show,” achieved her greatest success as the Brady family’s wise-cracking but devoted housekeeper Alice Nelson.
She appeared in several Brady reunion films and spin-off series, including the 1988 television reunion movie “A Very Brady Christmas.” The popular sitcom debuted in 1969 and aired for five seasons.
