Actress Ann. B. Davis, a former Ambridge resident, suffered a fall Saturday at her home and never recovered. She was 88.
At the time, the actress said she was dedicated to prayer and Bible study and was far more content than she ever had been in Hollywood.
While living in Ambridge, the San Antonio Express reports, Davis joined the national touring company of the musical “Crazy for You” and performed at the Majestic Theatre.
Davis was also active in the local community. She volunteered at Trinity and according to the Times, she narrated Ambridge High School's "T'was the Night Before Christmas" play in 1992.
When "The Brady Bunch" debuted in 1969, Davis was part of the cast, playing the quick-witted and beloved housekeeper Alice. The show produced by Sherwood Schwartz aired for five years, but lives on in reruns and sequels. Davis also filled the role in movies and reunions.
Before The Brady Bunch, she played a sharp-tongued secretary on "The Bob Cummings Show,” also known as “Love That Bob.” The show brought Davis two Emmys for supporting actress.
TMZ was first to report on Davis's death.
