Best known for playing the Brady's housekeeper Alice Nelson, Ann B. Davis has died at 88 years old. The actress took a fall at home over the weekend and subsequently passed away. Her long time agent Robert Malcolm confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter yesterday.

She was very sweet, I represent a lot of well-known people, and few have been so content with their lot. She enjoyed what she did in life. She just had a birthday [May 3] and was in fine health. It's sad she had to die this way.

Davis won two Emmys over the course of her career for her work on the Bob Cummings Show, but for many she will always be remembered as the chipper centre square on that long running show. May she rest in peace.
