from Fox 6:

 

Ann B. Davis, known for her role as housekeeper Alice Nelson on “The Brady Bunch,” died Sunday, close friend Bishop William Frey said. She was 88.

According to Frey, Davis fell and hit her head Saturday morning in her bathroom. She suffered a subdural hematoma and never regained consciousness.

Appearing in her trademark light blue maid’s uniform with a white apron, Alice anchored “The Brady Bunch” with her cheerful attitude and witty one-liners.

 

In real life, Davis said she wasn’t quite as handy around the house as her beloved character.

“I basically don’t do that well with children, although my sister says I’m a great aunt,” she told People, adding that she hates to cook.

“When it’s my turn in the house,” she told the magazine, “we just eat out.”

 

Her big break in Hollywood came when she won the role of Charmaine “Schultzy” Schultz, the secretary on the 1950s sitcom “The Bob Cummings Show"

 

Davis mostly retired from show business in the late 1970s to settle down in an Episcopal community.

“I’m convinced we all have a God-shaped space in us, and until we fill that space with God, we’ll never know what it is to be whole,” she told People.

Even as she turned her focus more toward religion, she appeared in commercials and several stage productions.

In the 1995 “The Brady Bunch” movie, she played a truck driver, persuading a runaway Jan to return home.

She told the Archive of American Television that she loved working on the small screen.
