From my understanding she was a good Christian woman.

I think Alice was the only decent person on the show.

I guess some of the kids may have been OK.

For some time she lived in Ambridge, PA (not far from me). I believe she was active in the local Episcopal Church.

I remember her most as “Schultzy” on “The Bob Cummings Show”

See these two biographies:

She was in one of the Doris Day — Rock Hudson romantic comedies. Can’t remember which one. Pillow Talk? Anyway, she was funny.

I suppose the bones of someone that age become very fragile. Plus, their sense of balance has likely diminished as well.

Yes. I remember reading about her Christianity some time ago. I certainly hope so.

RIP to someone who from all appearances was a genuinely sweet, caring and funny woman.

“older people are more likely to fall and either break a hip...”

Actually, I understand that they often fall because they broke a (brittle) bone. If old people are alone, they must have a way, 24/7, to communicate for help - it has nothing to do with independence, or how healthy they seem - they are old.

Usually when an elderly person falls its either because they slipped on something or because they might have had a stroke..my grandmother years ago had fallen in her room, appeared fine, a year later when she had to go to the hospital for other issues the doctor told my Mom “Did you know she had a stroke” it must have been a minor one because she showed no ill effects from it..depends on the severity of the stroke

Early one morning, I drove over to check on Daddy. He was 88 at the time and I found him on the carpet. He said he was checking the carpet for something but it was obvious he had fallen and had been lying there all night.

The paramedics did a fine job of getting him to the hospital without any more damage. They took some X-Rays and the Dr. at the emergency room did not think he had broken anything but when the radiologist arrived, he said his hip was broken in 4 places. They operated, put 4 pins in and the hip healed just fine but Daddy never walked again.

He made it to 90 in a nursing home but he was never the same physically or for that matter, mentally.

Thanks. “Alice” sure did have that comedic spark. I think of all the so-called comedy on TV today — potty humor at best — and long for the good old days of Doris and Rock and Alice.

Isn’t that the truth? My Mom and Dad fell in their 70s and 80s. Broken hips, but they recovered without complications, thank God. But to hit your head and die? How sad and awful.

That’s why the majority of TV comedies I watch are usually on Antenna TV and the majority of films I watch were made back when the Hays Code was still in effect(1933-1968).
