    "Alice Nelson"? Whoever knew Alice had a last name in her character on the brady bunch?

    Were there any scenes featuring her outside the kitchen in the Brady home? I do remember she dated Al the butcher, and her statement "too much chocolate makes too much Marsha". RIP Ann Davis.

    Here's a biography.....

    "Emmy Award-winning actress and comedian Ann B. Davis was born on May 3, 1926, in Schenectady, New York. She won Emmys in 1958 and 1959 for her role as "Schultzy" on The Bob Cummings Show, but is best known for her role as the zany but loving housekeeper on the 1970s sitcom The Brady Bunch. Davis retired from show business in 1976 to live in an Episcopal community, now located near San Antonio, Texas. She died at the age of 88 on June 1, 2014."

    Awwww.. This news has made me quite sad. You could just tell that she was a kind and beautiful woman, both inside and out.

    Rest in peace, Ann. My thoughts are with your friends and family. :rose:

    (CNN) -
    Actress Ann B. Davis, an American television legend who held "The Brady Bunch" together in her role as housekeeper Alice Nelson, died Sunday. She was 88.

    Bishop William Frey, a close friend of Davis, told CNN the actress died at a hospital in San Antonio, Texas, where she was treated after hitting her head in a fall. The actress suffered a subdural hematoma, he said, and never regained consciousness...

    ...Actress Florence Henderson, who played mom Carol Brady on the sitcom, said she was devastated to learn of Davis' death Sunday...

    ...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...
