Ann B. Davis, the actress who became famous for playing Alice, the housekeeper from the Brady Bunch, has died at the age of 88.
While well-known for her iconic television work, what is less well-known is that Ann was a devout Episcopalian. She had been living in a religious community with Bishop William Frey and his wife Barbara since 1976. The community was first located in Denver, then moved to San Antonio.
Interviewed numerous times in the press, Ann was never preachy about her faith, but quiet and matter of fact, continuing to make occasional public appearances in movies and television until recently.

May her rest this day be with the saints in light.
