[Ed. – RIP, Alice]
Ann B. Davis, who played beloved housekeeper Alice on TV’s “The Brady Bunch,” has died in San Antonio, Texas, according to multiple reports.
Ms. Davis, who played Alice Nelson during the show’s run from 1969-74, turned 88 on May 3.
She fell and hit her head in her bathroom Saturday morning, according to reports. Close friend Bishop William Frey tells CNN that she suffered a subdural hematoma and never regained consciousness.
She died early Sunday morning at a hospital in San Antonio, where she had lived for 18 years, her agent, Robert Malcolm, told NBC News.
Known for her trademark blue dress and apron, Alice brought a cheerful attitude to sometimes serious scenes among members of the television family, lead by actors Florence Henderson and Robert Reed.
Davis also returned to her famous role in the show’s remakes and movie updates, including “The Brady Brides” and “A Very Brady Christmas.”
