Emmy-winning actress Ann B. Davis, known for her role as Alice Nelson in “The Brady Bunch,” died Sunday at age 88.
Davis suffered a fall Saturday at her San Antonio, Texas, home and died Sunday morning in the hospital, reports Fox News. The exact cause of death is not available.
Before her role as a devoted housekeeper for “The Brady Bunch,” Davis played a secretary on another sitcom, “The Bob Cummings Show,” which won her two Emmys. She also appeared in a few movies and on Broadway.
Colleagues Florence Henderson, who played Carol Brady, and Eve Plumb, who played Jan Brady, in “The Brady Bunch” each released statements Sunday, according to Fox News. “I’m shocked and saddened! I’ve lost a wonderful friend and colleague,” said Henderson.
Plumb said she was “an amazing lady” and great to work with. “She was kind and generous to all of us on set.”
Davis never married. She said she never found a man who was more interesting than her career. ”By the time I started to get interested, all the good ones were taken” she told the Chicago Sun-Times.
An autopsy is planned for Monday.
