Gosh darn it you guys, Alice is gone. The Brady’s beloved housekeeper, cook and ninth family member has left the building. I don’t mind saying she was probably the most likable family member; certainly the most hard working. Besides all her regular cleaning, laundry, ironing, cooking, etc., Alice played surrogate mother to the kids, shrink — at one time or other — to both Mike and Carol, and marriage counselor too. Honestly, the Brady home probably could have easily run without either parent, but it couldn’t have done anything without Alice.
Besides wrangling the Bradys, Ann B. Davis was known for her double Emmy-winning performance as “Schultzie” on The Bob Cummings Show, and her theater work. She’ll truly be missed.
