Ann B. Davis took a fall in her bathroom and quickly became unresponsive.
Ann B. Davis, 88, who played the memorable housekeeper on The Brady Bunch, died at 8:30 a.m. this Sunday at a San Antonio hospital.
According to her agent, Robert Malcolm, she became comatose after a bathroom fall on Saturday.
“I am shocked and saddened! I've lost a wonderful friend and colleague,” said Florence Henderson, an actress Davis worked closely with on The Brady Bunch.
She had been using her walker for the past three months and had not done any on-screen acting for the past several years. Her agent, Robert Malcom, had not spoken with her since May 3.
“She was a really nice, a really lovely woman,” Malcolm said.
After The Brady Bunch ended, Davis appeared in spin-off episodes of the popular show. She also appeared in films like A Very Brady Christmas.
Prior to becoming Alice, the quick-witted Brady housekeeper who always had an extra ear to listen, was an Emmy winning secretary on the 1950s television series The Bob Cummings Show. She also worked on Broadway and other low budget movies.
According to the medical examiner, an autopsy is planned for Monday and the official cause of death will not be available until then.
