Ann B. Davis, who played beloved housekeeper Alice on TV’s The Brady Bunch, has died at a San Antonio hospital.
Bexar County, Texas, medical examiner’s investigator Sara Horne told the Associated Press Davis died Sunday morning at University Hospital. An autopsy was planned Monday to attempt to determine the cause of death, Horne said.
Davis, who played Alice Nelson during the show’s run from 1969-74, turned 88 on May 3.
She fell and hit her head in her bathroom Saturday morning, according to reports. Close friend Bishop William Frey tells CNN that she suffered a subdural hematoma and never regained consciousness.
She died early Sunday morning at a hospital in San Antonio, where she had lived for 18 years, her agent, Robert Malcolm, tells NBC News.
Known for her trademark blue dress and apron, Alice was a regular on The Brady Bunch and often brought a cheerful attitude to sometimes serious scenes among members of the television family, lead by actors Florence Henderson and Robert Reed.
