Ann B. Davis A Poem To Remember Her By

Ann B. Davis remembrance poem

Ann B

it is truly sad to see

A talent like yours put to rest

sad to lose you but I digress

You sang so well as a judge

In some roles you were tough and wouldn't budge

On the bob cummings show you made us all laugh

All the jokes on that show what a gas

You made us smile so often in lover come back

You entertained us when you played Pat

You finally came to us as Alice

Never showing any signs of malice

No ill will did your character play

All the kids use to say

we need a housekeeper like Alice

As Agnes on the love boat you brought us joy

We were happy in those Brady Bunch remakes you did employ

But few remember that you were on the stage

It's time for your fans to turn back the page

See a time you were part of much more then just one signature role

As an entertainer you were whole

Happy you made us as Alice

Farewell Ann B Davis

May you entertain in the clouds above

      Well done Joe, I knew she'd done a lot of other stuff before the Brady Bunch but wasn't sure what she'd been in. This was a good tribute to a talented woman. Sadly missed. Will live on through her role as Alice. (jhamman's name is Jamie. He was just signing his comment...lol)

      Thank you for creating this lovely tribute, Joe. I read about the death of Ann B. Davis yesterday and was sad to learn the news. I only saw her in the Brady Bunch as Alice but enjoyed watching her in that role. It was interesting to learn about her past by reading your poem.

      Awww, nice poem tribute. My friend and I were just talking about her and many of the other housekeepers or butlers that helped the families in their lives. :)

      Wonderful tribute to a very talented lady. Won't be the same seeing a Brady Bunch episode and know that she is no longer with us.

      Its very true, in way she made up a huge part of that show without being the main character.

      Hi,

      That was so sweet of you to write poem about her. She was in our homes every week and became a part of our viewing lives. A lady to remember for her talent and making our lives more enjoyable. My mother loved her.
