Ann B. Davis passed away Sunday, June 1, 2014, at the age of 88.  She fell in her bathroom and never regained conciseness.  She retired from show business after The Brady Bunch, but had cameos here and there.  We all loved her witty one-liners and her crazy, hot love affair with Sam, the butcher.

CNN Entertainment reports:
In a 2004 interview with the Archive of American Television, Davis described how she created the character.

"I made up a background story. I did have a twin sister, so I used that as a basis. ... I cared very much about this family. It was my family. It was as close to my family as Alice would ever get. I would have died for any single one of them at any point," she said. "You know, they wrote me such gorgeous things to do, as the intermediary between the kids and the adults, and between the boys and the girls. And they gave me funny things to do."

Here's to you, Ann...thanks for the laughs, thanks for always being there for The Bradys....and thanks for being an awesome part of my childhood.
