Alice

Ann B. Davis, who recently died, was the anchor character on the popular TV sitcom, "The Brady Bunch."

She was usually the voice of reason and wisdom and a model for service.

She was also "Alice" in real life.

Post Brady Bunch, Ann B. Davis was "Alice." Life imitating art but with a purpose.

She spent 38 years serving the homeless and providing a spiritual anchor to those in Episcoplian communities in Denver and San Antonio.

Far from the Hollywood spotlight and celebrities, she was "Alice" to the least of these — cooking, washing and giving counsel.

On television and in real life, she was faithful to the end.

A role well play and a life well lived.
