Georgia Engel, ‘Mary Tyler Moore Show’ Star, Dies at 70


Georgia Engel, who played the soft-spoken Georgette Baxter on ” The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” died Friday in Princeton, N.J. She was 70.

John Quilty, Engel’s friend and executor, told the The New York Times that the cause of death is unknown, as Engel was a Christian Scientist who did not consult doctors.

Engel was Emmy nominated twice for her role as Georgette, girlfriend and later wife to Ted Baxter. She joined “Mary Tyler” in 1972, during its third season.

Engel had recurring roles on “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “Hot in Cleveland.”
