She touched millions of viewers with her wit and spirit on “The Brady Bunch” and the death of Ann B. Davis has been felt throughout Tinseltown and around the nation.

Davis’ costar Barry Williams told “Good Morning America,” "I was reflecting throughout the day yesterday about one of the first times I met her. She was already a big star when she joined 'The Brady Bunch,' won a couple of Emmys with 'The Bob Cummings Show,' and I knew that this was someone I wanted to pay attention to but she had a wicked sense of humor."

He continued, "I remember watching from behind the camera when she was rehearsing one of the scenes for 'The Brady Bunch' and I was laughing along with her timing and stuff. Well, apparently, I was messing up her timing so she turned around and said, ‘Barry, comedy is not funny.’ I was crushed.”

“I thought, ‘Oh, my gosh. I’ve upset her. A little later I went over and said, ‘Excuse me. What did you mean when you said that comedy was not funny?’ and she said, ‘Oh, I was just kidding with you.’"

Furthermore, Florence Henderson tweeted, "I'm so shocked & saddened to learn my dear friend & colleague Ann B Davis died today. I spoke with her a few months ago & she was doing great.”
