John Quilty, her friend and executor, told the publication that the cause of death was undetermined because Georgia, who was a Christian Scientist, did not consult doctors.

The Mary Tyler Moore Show star Georgia Engel has died, aged 70.

Actress Georgia Engel, known for her role as the lovable Georgette on the CBS sitcom "The Mary Tyler Moore Show", has died at the age of 70.

Much later in her career, Engel received three Emmy nominations for playing Pat McDougall on 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.

Engel could be as upbeat as the fictional Georgette, as was demonstrated during a panel discussion previous year promoting the 2018 PBS special, Betty White: First Lady of Television. Heaton also recalled one of her favorite Raymond episodes featuring Engel.

Engel, the beloved actress from The Mary Tyler Moore Show andEverybody Loves Raymond as well as stage hits including The Drowsy Chaperone, is being remembered today by co-stars and colleagues for the big-hearted comedy style that was as unique as her personality.

Her real-life voice was as sweet as the one familiar from her screen roles.

Funeral services for Engel, whose survivors include her sisters Robin Engel and Penny Lusk, will be private, Quilty said.

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