Fans of The Brady Bunch were devastated to learn that Ann B. Davis, who played the family’s quirky, self-deprecating housekeeper Alice on the seminal ‘70s sitcom, died Sunday at 88 after a fall in her home in San Antonio, Texas. And while Americans are mourning the loss of one of TV’s greatest personalities, 20to30 leaves you with 5 of our favorite Alice moments that made her America’s favorite housekeeper. Sentimentality warning!

1. Far Out Alice

Displaying her always deft comedic timing, Alice tries her hand at some young ‘70s lingo.


2. Alice Available

No one was immune to Alice’s charms.


3. Hello?

Poor Alice! The Brady kids were always putting her through the wringer.


4. Don’t Question the Miracle

Arguably the show’s heart and soul, Alice often left us with simple words of wisdom.


5. “I’m Leaving”

Alice tells the Bradys that she’s leaving to take care of her sick aunt in ‘Seattle.’ Though Alice delivers the news in her typically peppy demeanor, our hearts break when she says, “Some of the happiest moments of my life have been spent right here in this house.” Us too!


Thank you for all the laughs! We’ll miss you, Alice!
