"Most people think of her as a really wonderful cook, but she didn't even know how to make meatloaf!", joked Barry Williams on the passing of his Brady Bunch co-star Ann B. Davis on NBC's TODAY.

Best known for her portrayal of Alice Nelson in The Brady Bunch, Davis passed away after a fall at the age of 88. A close friend of Davis confirmed the news. The actress had slipped and hit her head, which caused severe trauma. She passed away in a San Antonio hospital.

Williams told Today's Savannah Guthrie, "When she came on our set she was already a big star, having won a couple of Emmys. So I knew even as a young teenager she was someone I wanted to pay attention to."

The actor described Davis as a "big part of the family" and "a wonderful, wonderful woman, a great friend." Check out the appearance below and click here for more celebrity reactions to the death of Ann B. Davis.

Davis achieved prominence for her role in The Bob Cummings Show (1955-59) for which she twice won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

For 5 seasons, Davis played Alice Nelson on ABC's THE BRADY BUNCH, and became one of the most iconic TV characters. After the series ended in 1974, she continued to appear in specials, made-for-TV movies, and make cameos.

In 1960 she made her Broadway debut replacing Carol Burnett as the star of "Once Upon a Mattress." She took over the role of 'The Mother' in Broadway's 1992 production of Crazy for You.
