Comedy actress, Georgia Engel, has died at the age of 70.
Engel passed away on Friday in Princeton, New Jersey, according to The New York Times.
No cause of death has been revealed at this stage.
Engel is best known for her role as Ted Baxter’s girlfriend, Georgette on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
Her appearance on the show was so popular that she snagged two Emmy nominations for the role she played from 1972 to 1977.
“It was only going to be one episode,” she told The Toronto Star in 2007, “and I was just supposed to have a few lines in a party scene, but they kept giving me more and more to do.”
She followed up that series with roles on Betty White’s self-titled CBS sitcom, and ABC’s hit comedy series, Coach.
In more recent years, Engel played the role of Pat on CBS hit comedy series, Everybody Loves Raymond.
That role paved the way for her to garner three Emmy nominations for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series from 2003 to 2005.
Her last TV role was on Netflix’s popular One Day at a Time during its second season.
Engel was the daughter of a U.S. Coast Guard admiral. She moved many times around the U.S. while she was growing up.
Upon graduating college, she made her way to New York where she secured her first role on stage in an Off-Broadway musical.
Engel is survived by her sisters Robin Engel and Penny Lusk.
May Georgia rest in peace.
