She had a twin sister, Harriet, and an older brother, Evans.

When she was just 3 years old, Davis moved with her family to Erie, Pennsylvania, where she attended Strong Vincent High School, graduating in 1944.

She won Emmys in 1958 and 1959 for her role as “Schultzy” on The Bob Cummings Show, but is best known for her role as the zany but loving housekeeper on the 1970s sitcom The Brady Bunch. Davis retired from show business in 1976 to live in an Episcopal community, now located near San Antonio, Texas.  She died at the age of 88 on June 1, 2014.
