Ann B. Davis, who played the lovable housekeeper Alice on “The Brady Bunch,” died Sunday morning. She was 88.

Her agent, Robert Malcolm, said that she fell in the bathroom and became comatose. She died at about 8:30 a.m. Sunday at a hospital in San Antonio, where she had lived with a minister friend and his wife.

Davis hadn’t worked in several years, Malcolm said, and she had been using a walker. He last spoke with her on her birthday, May 3.

“She was a really nice, a really lovely woman,” Malcolm said.

People Magazine:

Early baby boomers knew her as Charmaine “Schultzy” Schultz, the man-hungry receptionist on TV’s 1955-59 The Bob Cummings Show. Late baby boomers knew her as Alice Nelson, the eternally optimistic housekeeper on a 1969-74 slice of fantasy Americana called The Brady Bunch.

But no matter the character she played, actress Ann B. Davis, who died Sunday at 88, was unquestionably one thing to all audiences: lovable.

“All of us wish we had an Alice,” Davis told PEOPLE in 1992. “I wish I had an Alice.”

At the time, the actress, who was born (with an identical twin sister, Harriet) on May 3, 1926, in Schenectady, New York, was sharing a home in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, with an Episcopal bishop and his wife. She was dedicated to prayer and Bible study and said she was far more content than she ever had been in Hollywood.

She explained her spiritual self to the magazine with a memory from childhood.
