Few other details are available at this time, but a family friend tells CNN that Davis suffered a subdural hematoma and never regained consciousness.

She was not affected by any health issues at the time of her passing.

Davis earned Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on The Bob Cummings Show (1955–59).

But she'll forever be remembered to most television fans as Alice, the housekeeper who doled out wisdom on a daily basis to Mike, Carol and their six kids.

In 1960, the Schenectady native received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

We send our condolences to her friends and loved ones.
