The Emmy-winning actress best known as Alice from The Brady Bunch died Sunday after suffering a subdural hematoma in a fall, reports CNN. She was 88. Years before she kept house for a man named Brady, his lovely wife, and their unconventional brood of children, Ann Bradford Davis rose to prominence in 1955 playing Charmaine ‘Schultzy’ Schultz on The Bob Cummings Show. The role earned her four Emmy nominations and two wins, and within five years she garnered her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Davis also performed on The John Forsythe Show and in films like Lover Come Back and All Hands On Deck before establishing the most iconic character of her career: Alice Nelson, the housekeeper to the Brady Bunch. She played the character from from 1969 to 1974 and reprised the role in The Brady Bunch Variety Hour, spin-offs The Brady Brides and The Bradys, and reunion movies The Brady Girls Get Married and A Very Brady Christmas.
