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.
Davis had planned to study medicine at the University of Michigan but caught the acting bug from her brother, who was a dancer in the national company of “Oklahoma,” according to a biography of the actress on IMDb.com.
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,” IMDb said.
