'Mary Tyler Moore Show' actress Georgia Engel dies at 70

Source: WBAY, ABC affiliate in Green Bay, WI

LOS ANGELES (AP) Georgia Engel, who played the charmingly innocent, small-voiced Georgette on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and amassed a string of other TV and stage credits, has died. She was 70.

Engel died Friday in Princeton, New Jersey, said her friend and executor, John Quilty. The cause of death was unknown because she was a Christian Scientist and didn't see doctors, Quilty said Monday.

Engel was best known for her role as Georgette on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," whose character was improbably destined to marry pompous anchorman Ted Baxter, played by Ted Knight.

4. I'm suprprised she made it that far, since she was a "Christian Scientist."

They won't see a doctor, for anything wrong.

It was good to see her again on "Hot in Cleveland" ... what a sweet character!

9. This is a great quote from her on the IMDB website

Although I play silly parts, in order for others to share in the laughter I think it's important to have a heart that's full of joy and gratitude. Joy is a very holy thing and we can never own it. We can only reflect it.

She just seemed like a genuinely nice person in all the interviews I've seen of her. I am surprised, though, she was only 70.
