Georgia Engel Dead - 'Mary Tyler Moore Show' Star Dies at 70

17 April 2019

Georgia Engel, who played the soft-spoken and innocent Georgette Franklin on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and Pat McDougall on "Everybody Loves Raymond", has died.

Quilty said the cause of death remains unknown.

She was a five-time Emmy nominee, receiving two nods for the late Moore's show and three for Everybody Loves Raymond. Cast as bubbly Georgette, her part kept expanding as audiences delighted in her sweet delivery in contrast to her TV husband Ted Knight's comedic bluster as narcissistic anchorman Ted Baxter. "And insane talented. I will miss her", Valerie Bertinelli, who starred in "Hot in Cleveland", said in a Twitter post.

Engel appeared on Broadway in plays and musicals including Hello, Dolly!

Off-Broadway she was seen in Annie Baker's John at Signature Theatre for which she won an Obie Award, Uncle Vanya at Soho Rep, and, Will Eno's Middletown at Vineyard Theatre.

Engel's final credited television appearance came a year ago in the Netflix series "One Day at a Time".

When that show ended in 1977, she appeared in a few more short-lived sitcoms and made appearances in movies like "Dr. Dolittle 2" and "The Sweetest Thing" before landing the role in "Everybody Loves Raymond".

Her other television credits include Rhoda, Hot in Cleveland, Coach, One Day At A Time, Two And A Half Men, The Office, Neighbours, Passions, Fantasy Island, The Love Boat, Mork & Mindy, and many more.

Engel reunited with "Mary Tyler Moore's" Gavin MacLeod in 2018.
