Ann B. Davis, age 88, died today at home, in San Antonio, Texas. She apparently took a fall in the bathroom and suffered a subdural hematoma, which is a fatal brain injury. Her fall led to a coma and sudden death. The beloved star of stage and screen was found dead by friends who she lived with. Her role as Alice, the housekeeper, on The Brady Bunch was her most famous gig. She portrayed the keeper of the secrets within the family of the Brady household and was the glue that held them all together. They became her family for a time, as she did not marry or have children of her own. The talented comedian also won two Emmys on The Bob Cummings Show, did work here and there until finding her role as Alice.
Retired, Davis was healthy otherwise for a woman of her age. Not working for awhile and enjoying the money she had earned, Davis kept in touch with former cast mates. Her greatest joy was her friends over the years and being involved with church groups. She will be sadly missed by many.
