It is said with a heavy heart that Ann B. Davis, the lovable housekeeper Alice on "The Brady Bunch," departed this world on Sunday morning at the age of 88. According to her agent Robert Malcolm, she fell in the bathroom and became comatose instantly. She was rushed to the hospital in San Antonio where she had lived with a friend minister and his wife but unfortunately she took her last breath at about 8:30 a.m.
According to agent Malcolm, Ann B. Davis wasn’t in the best of health conditions. She had lately started to use the walker which aided her in walking and it had been a long while since she had took up any work. And since there was no work, he didn’t see her much; the last time he spoke to her was on her birthday on May 3rd. Remembering her, he says "She was a really nice, a really lovely woman.”
During her career, Ann B. Davis was a proud winner of two Emmys which she received for her role as a quick-witted secretary on the 1950s sitcom “The Bob Cummings Show” and her greatest success came when she took up the role of Brady family’s wise-cracking but devoted housekeeper Alice Nelson. Her duty as Alice was to clean up all the mess around the house and alongside that she was a source of stability to the Brady family. "I'm shocked and saddened! I've lost a wonderful friend and colleague," said Florence Henderson, who played Carol Brady, in a statement Sunday.
