From my understanding she was a good Christian woman.
She was probably the best of the lot on that show.
That is no way to go.
She certainly dressed the best.
It sure beats the lengthy illness route.
Looks that way from the article. RIP.
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:
Im assuming she did not have a caregiver..horrible, absolutely horrible..older people are more likely to fall and either break a hip or suffer a head injury..condolences to her family..just watched an episode of the Brady Bunch “Lost Locket, Found Locket” RIP Alice
She’ll be serving pork chops and apple sauce in Heaven.
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.
awww, that makes me very sad. I have an aunt that I always tease is a mix of Alice and McGyver ;)
Kind of feels like a member of my family died...grew up watching her, and now with TVLand, my 10 year old watches every.dang.episode!
Love That Bob.
What a show!
Sam won’t be serving her his prime rib anymore.
RIP Mrs. Davis. (if you can read this from heaven)
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.
She played Miss Day’s secretary in “Lover Come Back”. Here’s clip of her from it-
My favorite show as a kid.
“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.
No spouse, Episcopalian, rumors... A hum.
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
Alice Kramden you mean. She was... the greatest.
My grandfather died the same way. RIP Alice. Thanks for the wholesome laughs.
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.
“From my understanding she was a good Christian woman.”
She was from what I always read.
“Love that Bob” I remember watching the reruns at lunch time back in 57.
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.
True, lots of possible reasons...so sad when it happens.
“Pork Chops and Applesauce”! I remember that episode.
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).
Maybe this is why my wife keeps ‘forgetting’ to buy a bath mat for our very slippery tub...insurance money? Hmmm...
Yeah, Schultzy on LOVE THAT BOB. She was the best.
She was hilarious on the show. RIP.
So sorry. She was a wonderful actress. Rest in peace.
Her children must be crushed.
Another Classic! RIP< Alice... BTW...Have been married to “hazel” for 38 years...Kid you not...funny gal
That’s just wrong.
