Emmy-winning actor Ann B. Davis, who became the country’s favorite and most famous housekeeper as the devoted Alice Nelson of The Brady Bunch, died Sunday at a San Antonio hospital. She was 88. Bexar County, Texas, medical examiner’s investigator Sara Horne said Davis died Sunday morning at University Hospital. Horne said no cause of death was available and that an autopsy was planned. Bill Frey, a retired Episcopal bishop and Davis’ longtime friend, said she suffered a fall Saturday at her San Antonio home. Frey said Davis had lived with him and his wife, Barbara, since 1976. "The public image of her that people have is an accurate image of a strong, wonderful, lively human being," Frey said. "The only part that’s inaccurate about that is she had trouble relating to small children, and she doesn’t cook." More than a decade before scoring as the Bradys’ loyal Alice, Davis was the razor-tongued secretary on another stalwart TV sitcom, The Bob Cummings Show, which brought her supporting actress Emmy Awards in 1958 and 1959. Over the years, she also appeared on Broadway and in occasional movies. In the early ’70s, Ms. Davis appeared regularly in Tampa Bay dinner theaters. She lived in a gulf-front apartment for the five-week run in 1971 of One Up, One Down, One Pending, at the Showboat Theater on Ulmerton Road in Clearwater. In 1974, she appeared in Three on a Honeymoon at the Country Dinner Playhouse in St. Petersburg’s Gateway Mall. On The Bob Cummings Show, also known as "Love That Bob," she played Schultzy, the assistant to Cummings’ character, a handsome, swinging bachelor photographer always chasing beautiful women. After the series ended in 1959, Davis appeared in such movies as A Man Called Peter, Lover Come Back and All Hands on Deck. Davis never married, saying she never found a man who was more interesting than her career. "By the time I started to get interested (in finding someone)," she told the Chicago Sun-Times, "all the good ones were taken." — Associated Press
