‘Mary Tyler Moore Show’ actress Georgia Engel dies at 70

By LYNN ELBER

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A friend of Georgia Engel, the actress who was part of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” says she has died at age 70.

John Quilty, who was also her executor, said Engel died Friday in Princeton, New Jersey. The cause of death wasn’t known because she was a Christian Scientist and didn’t see doctors, Quilty said Monday.

Engel was best known for her role as charmingly innocent, small-voiced Georgette on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.”

Engel also had recurring roles on “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “Hot in Cleveland.” She received two Emmy nominations for Moore’s show and three for “Everybody Loves Raymond.”

1. Aww, that's too bad. She's a very cute lady ... Loved her on Hot In Cleveland as Betty's BFF :)

She played the lovable ditz better than ... just about anyone.

3. What stuck out reading this: " Christian Scientist and didn't see doctors". That's sad.

8. Wow. They don't even know the cause of death because she "didn't see doctors."

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.
