Retired bishop Bill Frey, who’s a longtime friend of Davis, said that Davis fell down on Saturday at her home and the fall was ultimately her demise. Frey told the media that Davis had lived with him and his wife, Barbara, since 1976.
For many years after The Brady Bunch wound up, Davis led a quiet religious life, affiliating herself with a group led by Frey. “I was born again,” she told the AP in 1993. “It happens to Episcopalians. Sometimes it doesn’t hit you till you’re 47 years old. It changed my whole life for the better. … I spent a lot of time giving Christian witness all over the country to church groups and stuff.”
