The Brady Bunch - The Brady Bunch's Ann B. Davis Dies At 88

Former The Brady Bunch star Ann B. Davis has died, aged 88.

The actress, best known for her role as lovable housekeeper Alice Nelson on the classic Tv series, passed away on Sunday (01Jun14) at her home in Los Angeles.

A family friend tells Cnn she suffered a subdural haematoma (a collection of blood on the surface of the brain) after slipping and hitting her head in the bathroom, and never regained consciousness.

Davis starred in The Brady Bunch until the end of its five-year run in 1974, and went on to reprise her role in a number of spin-off series, including The Brady Bunch Variety Hour, The Brady Brides and The Bradys.

She also made a cameo as a truck driver in the 1995 feature film The Brady Bunch Movie.

Prior to her role as Alice, Davis starred on U.S. sitcom The Bob Cummings Show, for which she won two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

She also appeared in other programmes including The John Forsythe Show and Love American Style.

Davis earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960.
