Despite her age, Davis' death came as a surprise to the couple with whom she lived.

One roommate tells TMZ that Davis was in good health, walking downstairs on Saturday evening to say goodnight.

Davis rose to fame on The Bob Cummings Show (1955–59), twice winning the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

But she will forever be remembered as Alice Nelson, the housekeeper on The Brady Bunch for five years who dished out words of wisdom to Mike and Carol and their six kids.

In 1960, the Schenectady, New York native received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

We send our condolences to her loved ones.
