Davis reportedly fell and hit her head on Saturday morning at her home in Texas and suffered a subdural hematoma, never regaining consciousness, according to CNN. She died at a San Antonio hospital, according to The Associated Press.

Clad in her blue housekeeper's uniform, Davis' character Alice often was the comic relief and kept the Brady household running.

Despite her role as a housekeeper, Davis said she wasn't great with children in real life.

"I basically don't do that well with children, although my sister says I'm a great aunt," she told People magazine in 1992.

Davis was born May 3, 1926 and had planned to attend the University of Michigan to study medicine. She discovered acting thanks to her brother who was touring with the musical Oklahoma!

In the 1950s, she played Schultzy on The Bob Cummings Show. She received a Primetime Emmy Award in 1958 for Best Continuing Supporting Performance by an Actress in a Dramatic or Comedy Series. She won another Primetime Emmy in 1959 for Best Supporting Actress (Continuing Character) in a Comedy Series.

According to the Archive of American Television, Davis had roles on The Keefe Brasselle Show and the sitcom The John Forsythe Show in the 1960s, as well as appearances on the Perry Como Show and Arthur Murray's Dance Party.

After the Brady Bunch ended, Davis did not act much, but did make a cameo appearance as a truck driver in the 1995 Brady Bunch Movie.

Davis left show business in 1976 to join Bishop William C. Frey's Episcopal Commune outside of Denver for a year.
