'Brady Bunch' star Ann B Davis dies

Emmy-winning actress Ann B Davis, who played the housekeeper on The Brady Bunch, has died at a San Antonio hospital. She was 88.

Bexar County, Texas, medical examiner's investigator Sara Horne says Davis died yesterday morning. She says no cause of death is available and that a post-mortem is planned for today.

Bishop Bill Frey, a long-time friend of Davis, says she suffered a fall on Saturday at her San Antonio home and never recovered.

The Brady Bunch debuted in 1969 and aired for five years, with Davis as Alice, the mainstay for the sitcom family. She appeared in various Brady spin-offs and sequels over the years.

In the 1950s, Davis was the sharp-tongued secretary on another stalwart TV sitcom, The Bob Cummings Show. The role brought her two Emmys.
