Mary Tyler Moore Show actress Georgia Engel dies at 70

Actress Georgia Engel, best known for her portrayal of Georgette on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, died Friday in Princeton, New Jersey. She was 70.

Engel's friend and executor, John Quilty, said she was a Christian Scientist, and because she did not see doctors, the cause of death is unknown.

Engel had recurring roles on Everybody Loves Raymond and Hot in Cleveland, and also appeared on Broadway, starring in The Drowsy Chaperone in 2006. She was nominated for five Emmy awards, and was last seen in 2018 on the Netflix revival of One Day at a Time. Engel is survived by her sisters Robin Engel and Penny Lusk.
