America’s favorite housekeeper died on Sunday after suffering a fatal fall a day earlier
Ann B. Davis worked as the maid for “The Brady Bunch,” but she made her way into the homes and hearts of countless Americans in the famous Alice Nelson role.
Davis died Sunday in San Antonio after falling and hitting her head a day earlier. She was 88.
Long before Hollywood mourned her passing, they laughed at her antics: Davis landed her career defining “Brady” role in 1969. She appeared on the hit television series during its entire five year run.
But before cleaning up — and looking — after “The Brady Bunch,” Davis co-starred on “The Bob Cummings Show” in the 1950s, earning two Emmy Awards, according to her IMDB page. In 1960, she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
