Ann B. Davis tribute to air tomorrow (6/5) on INSP. Six Alice-centric Brady Bunch episodes are set to air back-to-back beginning at 5:00 PM (ET). Davis, who died Sunday at the age of 88 following a fall in her home, played the favorite maid of a generation of TV viewers who grew up on reruns of the iconic family sitcom. She was also a woman of faith as noted in this Religion News Service obituary.
